Bespoke Venture Arts projects

We can offer your school projects of one half-day up to a full term, depending on your requirements, in all of the art forms described above.



Staff who attend the projects often learn new skills, techniques and best practice in diversity from our professional tutors and artist mentors, that can be valuable in the future. This way of working is different, innovative and most of all, very creative. Please contact us if you would like to chat about how we can help your teachers with CPD.
