We have an excellent track record in delivering educational workshops both in school and out. Increasingly our educational work combines art techniques with learning about other subjects relating to heritage and environment.

Most recently, we partnered with Devon Wildlife Trust to work with children from eight primary schools on a project called Community Trails. Have a look at the trailer below and get in touch with Caroline - caroline@beaford.org - if you’d like to find out more.

The children have learnt a lot of new art techniques which they’re putting into practice. It’s impacted on their work in geography, literacy and history and working within our local community.
