Schools and Community

Kite Studios has worked with many local primary and secondary schools (KS1, KS2 and KS3), community organisations and companies in and around West London.

We have delivered a wide range of projects in the past including playground murals, whole school projects, ‘nurture’ groups for vulnerable children and after school clubs. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any invitations or proposals to collaborate – please contact us at info@kitestudios.org

For example, we are currently delivering projects in several local schools commissioned by West London Zone. Previously we have been commissioned by LBH&F to deliver projects to 16 schools as part of the Extended Services Department for Family Learning. We have delivered projects at the Victoria & Albert Museum, with Groundwork and further afield at the Discover Children’s Centre, Stratford.

As well as the obvious benefits of art education, we support work experience and employment opportunities for young people, providing a springboard for their future prospects. We particularly value and enjoy delivering projects that engage members of the community who would not otherwise have ready access to art education.

Our particular areas of interest are;

  • hosting small ‘nurture’ groups (up to 16) at Kite Studios during the school day or after school; these offer the opportunity for selected children to develop skills and build self esteem and confidence in a supportive environment within our fully equipped arts and pottery studios
  • whole school projects (e.g. Arts Week wall mural over the course of a week on-site at school)

We have a long standing partnership with The Good Shepherd RC Primary School. Each year we devise a project working with the teachers. This allows us to focus on an area of the curriculum that can be enhanced by the experience of the children working on projects in the studio.

We currently deliver the West London Free School Secondary after school Art Club.

Each project needs to be self-funded and the costings will obviously depend on the venue, duration, numbers of students, materials, teacher/parent support. We can tailor our proposal to the particular needs and budget available.
