EDUCATION WORK (Outreach Workshops In Schools).
Heritage Ceramics operates as a collective of highly trained and practising African or African-inspired artists and designers. Our team of artists, who work in schools, specialize in providing an input in the cross-curricular delivery of arts in the National Curriculum.
Work in our schools’ program is grouped in two broad areas, fine arts and performing arts. Clay work and textiles are the two main fine art activities we undertake. For performing arts, we explore African story telling, drama, music, drumming and dance. Sometimes a workshop combines elements of two or more of these activities to create a performance.
Drawing links to one or more subject areas in the school curriculum, workshops usually engage, challenge, encourage and create fun for pupils and staff we work with.
In line with education guidelines, we have included general risk assessment forms for the two main areas of our work in schools. One for clay or textiles work,(fine art activity) and one for the range of performing art activities.
Artists undergo regular CRB checks. The company CRB forms are available on request during the arrangement and planning of school visits. Team members also train in aspects of business management, ICT- its impact on modern education, self-development in all the activities and skills on our schools’ program.
