Are you interested in how art, music and drama could benefit the clients/pupils you work with?
Want to do exciting art projects on zero budget and avoid wobbly clay pots or colouring books?
Wondering where to start when teaching drama or singing?
Or just want some fresh ideas for doing art, music or drama in your classroom/community/setting/centre?
This session is ideal for teachers, support workers and others working in the community who have little experience of using art, drama and music, but are keen to try new ideas. We will discuss how to realistically create fun, interesting sessions tailored to the needs, budgets and resources of your school or community setting.
Sarah studied music at the University of Birmingham, but has supported and facilitated community arts workshops since she was a teenager. She now teaches art, music and drama in primary, secondary and special schools and recently recruited and directed a brand new children’s chorus for Midland Opera’s production of Turandot. For BCAT she has worked with learning disabled elderly service users at Deelands Hall and in Balsall Heath and she is one of the facilitators for the BCAT Starz project running this Autumn. Sarah is passionate about improving access to the arts and the opportunities her work brings for her to meet new people and learn new perspectives. Her favourite colours are blue and green and in her spare time she loves dancing and African drumming!
