Stewarts have generously sponsored this next set of workshops by increasing the arts budget for Nina and local schools to develop a series of art projects. Nina has been involved in running Art Weeks for schools for 8 years and during this time has designed projects to work alongside existing projects, the International Primary Curriculum and projects that build on cross curricular links. This has included supporting Learning Outside the Classroom and the Creative Curriculum as well as enabling Healthy Schools’ outcomes and Enjoy and Achieve.

Projects can be designed to suit your current term's topics, Nina is always happy to give ideas for the content of workshops. You can also ask about funding sources to fund your workshop further for more information about the projects call Nina on 01258 458803.

Stewarts are supporting local school children’s environmental awareness through the Little Green Fingers art workshops run by local artist Nina Squire. Nina was Artist in residence at St Johns First School, Wimborne during Environment Week. Working with things from Dorset Scrap Store the children and Nina created a flower meadow mural by weaving scrap materials through a fence in the school grounds. A great way of making use of wasted materials, helping children understand recycling and appreciating the environment around them.
