Workshops

Workshops for all ages and abilities, delivered inside or outside using a wide range of materials and techniques.

We have delivered tailored workshops for nearly everyone. For corporate away days to cub scouts to the Over 50’s Club. At prisons, schools, village halls, 5 star hotels and retirement homes. On the street, in club houses and in school playgrounds.

There is an increasing awareness that street art projects are an effective method of reaching and engaging people. They are also great community building exercises, and linked into larger projects we have involved all abilities and all ages from 5 to 95.

Our workshops include CRB checked artists and all materials required, but our services can also incorporate the following:

  • Consultancy & project management
  • CRB checked youth and support workers
  • Spray paint free workshops
  • Safety masks and protective gear
  • Reference and art materials
  • Fume extractor fans and outdoor shelters
  • Workshops with artists in different mediums
  • BTEC qualifications
  • Environmentally friendly alternatives
  • Documentation – film, online and stills

Workshops can be one-off, a series, or form part of a larger project, from a small mural to communitywide engagement.

Meaningful and successful inclusion is our primary concern so we create tailored workshop to suit the interests of each group. Often we are asked to think of different ways to engage people, from graffiti cake decorating to large murals. That’s fine by us, we like different.

Workshops we have run include:

  • Individual name boards
  • Take-home art pieces (good for everyone)
  • Small murals (good for team building)
  • Visual brainstorming (good for corporate away days)
  • Story exchange (good for intergenerational groups)
  • Wooden cut-out animals (good for primary schools)
  • Customised fashion: T-shirts, baby-grows & trainers
  • Customising remote control cars
  • Christmas decorations – street art style
  • Short film production using mobile phones

Our experience delivering series of workshops over along time scale has found that many participants put in a huge amount of work but do not receive accreditation.

To address this Signal is now working in close partnership with Education consultants Beyond Knowledge to develop tailored accredited curriculum projects around Street Art and other creative disciplines, including digital media.

Working either inside or outside school hours, we can deliver additional accreditation to the existing school curriculum, which benefits both the students and the participating schools.

Our most recent tailored accreditation was the BTEC Level 2 Visual Arts Award (equivalent to one GCSE), which was delivered to 16 art students over 40 contact hours with a 100% pass rate.
