Artworks runs a thriving art and design outreach programme in Primary and Secondary Schools in Calderdale. At a time when arts subjects are chronically underfunded and under threat in our schools Artworks works to provide critical professional support to teachers at primary and secondary level.

We deliver in schools and on site in our grade II listed ex industrial textile mill on the outskirts of Halifax. Here, the combination of art studios, gallery and teaching spaces mean that there’s always something different to see .

All of our provision is tailored to suit the specific needs of the schools we work with. Our team of Artist Educators will work closely with staff to inspire and support their needs delivering anything from one-off sessions to longer-term projects that link Art with subjects across the curriculum.
