Feedback from Schools
‘An excellent well delivered workshop. Great to have Helen’s input regarding how sculptures are created… bring[ing] the art pieces to life for the children, enabling them to feel that their opinions and responses are valued. In a world where children are becoming more passive learners and technology is instant, it is vital that children have these opportunities to interact with art pieces and be able to look at them with a more critical eye. Thank you for continuing to provide them - we feel very privileged to be able to take part.’ - Victoria Milne & Sophie Davies, Teachers, Westbury on Trym Academy (Look Imagine Write)
