Application deadline: Friday 8th July 2022
Arts Connect want to collaborate with a group of Black Country based creative teachers to explore strategies to embed contemporary art thinking and making practices within the classroom. We are looking to work with up to 8 primary or secondary teachers to form a core group who will develop exciting learning opportunities and activities with their students and share their learning with a wider teacher network.
We will be exploring a range of contemporary art processes and themes and have the opportunity to visit and take inspiration from The New Art Gallery Walsall iteration of Breaking the Mould, a contemporary sculpture exhibition which opens in October 2022.
The lead teacher programme will include the development of in-school activities, teacher and student artist led workshops and a public exhibition of student’s artwork. Lead Teacher schools will receive £250 to support activities.
Please email Becky if you have any queries or to chat about how this could work for you and your students.
