With the summer holidays just around the corner, this event is programmed for art and photography teachers to (re)ignite their personal creative practice within and beyond the school environment.

Take part in a series of practical prompts and open discussion led by artist and educator Natasha Caruana. At a time when teaching responsibilities result in personal practice being lost or minimised, this session centres on the word ‘artist’ in artist-teacher and aims to create space for teachers to prioritise their own practice.

All materials and refreshments provided.

Please note: This session is part of our teachers’ programme, and specifically programmed for primary and secondary teachers in England.
