We welcome applications from a range of visual arts including painting, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, collage etc.

We are looking to commission artists for each year group from Reception to Year 6 and we welcome applicants to specify the age group they would like to work with.

There will also be an Art Exhibition on Friday 19thNovember, which applicants can visit voluntarily.

  • ½ day planning and preparation time.
  • Completion of an evaluation questionnaire
