The Roche Court Educational Trust’s ARTiculation initiative is designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing individual thinking, observation, research, language and presentation skills. ARTiculation workshops for 14 – 19 year olds are held throughout the year and an annual competition for sixth formers takes place in the spring. Examples of past presentations can be viewed here.

ARTiculation 2016 will be taking place in England, Ireland, Scotland, and with the British Council in Italy. If you would like to know more about your local free events and to apply for a free School Support Pack please see the relevant section or contact us.

ARTiculation supports national academic and vocational initiatives to include EQA’s, the Arts Award, and The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
