Teachers' evenings, CPD and art sessions

Orleans House Gallery aims to provide art and local history support to local teachers, through a new school art forum and by running inset days.

Schools Art Forum

This free forum for teachers will include an arts skills CPD, free resources, the opportunity to shape the programme and to share creative ideas with other teachers.

  • News, resources and practical activities from The Big Draw. The theme this October is #LivingLines17. 
  • Arts Award and Artsmark Partnership
  • First steps in to our Local Creative Curriculum planning
  • Updates from Transforming Orleans House
