ARTiculation Workshops


workshop image


ARTiculation workshops have been designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing observation, research, critical analysis, language, presentation and public speaking skills. Led by art experts, students are encouraged to think independently, ask informed questions and analyse information.


In-school Introductions

ARTiculation outreach will be focussed on 3 regions in particular in 2017/2018: Manchester, Kent and the South West. To kick off ARTiculation 2018 we will be delivering in-school introductions, assemblies and workshops in June and July 2017.
If you are a school in one of these regions and would like us to introduce ARTiculation in school, please contact: Josepha Sanna, ARTiculation Outreach


ARTiculation Discovery Days

The ARTiculation Discovery Day is a workshop open to Key Stage 4 and 5 students designed to develop and support students’ understanding and engagement with art.  During the workshops students will explore art works through personal observation, discussion and research and will be introduced to tips on how to conquer nerves, physically prepare, and successfully deliver a presentation to large audiences. At the end of the day each student will deliver their research and personal responses in short group presentations to the workshop leaders and their fellow student investigators.

As part of the ARTiculation outreach, the Discovery Days are open to all students from state-maintained schools.


ARTiculation ‘Crit’ Sessions

The ARTiculation ‘Crit’ Sessions are open to all sixth form students aged 16 to 19 and are designed to give an introduction to critical visual analysis, based in the art school ‘Crit’ model. The sessions develop key visual and critical analysis skills and are led by professional organisations including Q-Art.
