For several years now the school’s programme has been led by artist Sara Heywood and run in partnership with Chisenhale Art Place. The programme aims to inspire young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible.
An important part of the programme is the special opportunity the children have to visit working artists in their studios, this allows the children to talk directly with the artist and see their work first hand – this year they visited Chisenhale Studio artists Diana Taylor and Sam Hodge.
On the 9th of June the children were surprised by a taster session with Sam Hodges, she took materials over to the school and gave the kids a guided demonstration of a printmaking technique favored by her. Each of the children produced several prints which they proudly displayed a the exhibition.
