What people are saying

"I liked doing the drawings and how Jim explained how to do it. He was a very good artist and I liked the cats. Working with Jim was fantastic!"

Year 4 pupil, St Clements CE Primary School.

"On the last visit, the pupils got through so much work and said ‘I didn’t realise I’d done this much, I’ve enjoyed it so much’. The residency made all pupils feel they could succeed. There’s a number of SEN pupils in class who felt ‘on a par’ with their peers."

Teacher, St Clements CE Primary School.


One day with one class or four days with two classes.
The four day residency incorporates a visit to the gallery to explore our collection and gain inspiration.
