Key Stage 3 & Key Stage 4 Creative Learning

Masterclasses
These sessions are focused on developing skills in specific art-forms and genres across music, dance, drama and the visual arts. Students meet and learn about a practicing artist, and experience a masterclass of workshop activity designed to challenge their ability level and current subject knowledge.

After-school workshops
Afterschool classes are a great way to enrich the learning which takes place in the classroom and support students who are working towards, or considering, arts subjects at GCSE and A-Level. Z-arts offers weekly extra-curricular activities, delivered in 5-10 week blocks. Sessions are designed in close consultation with teachers to enable skills progression in art-form areas including; dance, drama, music, and visual arts.

Bright Ideas
These 1-2hr sessions explore the sensitive and difficult issues that young people face through music, dance, drama, visual arts or creative writing. Themes such as Body Image, Racism, Bullying, Online Safety, and Sexuality are addressed and explored through carefully considered creative sessions designed in close consultation with teachers. Z-arts also delivers a Cultural Diversity offer which explores identity, diversity and community across a wide range of art-forms.

Design a Z-arts Creative Learning workshop
All our activity in schools begins with a conversation, so if you have an idea for a workshop or project please do get in touch. You can use our Z-arts menu to get a flavour of some of the art-forms and themes we have delivered in the past.

Costs
Many schools find that a Bright Sparks School Membership is the most cost effective and convenient way to plan and pay for Creative Learning activity with Z-arts.
However, activity which takes place outside of a Bright Sparks School membership is costed to be as affordable as possible for schools whilst covering the artist fees and materials. Our fees for Z-artist led sessions are tailored to individual programmes, but as a guide our prices, excluding any materials, will usually fall within the following ranges:

1-hour artist-led class workshop in school, cost per artist: £30- £45.00
Whole day of artist-led activity in school, cost per artist: £200 – £250
