Painting, drawing,

collage, graphics, sculptures, installations, set design, costumes, photography, music, dance
and literature

The workshops are run by professionally qualified facilitators and educators, in English and/or Polish. Our workshops can be found in schools, community centres, libraries, museums - and any place where the demand for them arises! We have a set of scenarios and activities to offer, as experience in drafting tailored workshops to incorporate local ideas or specific themes.​

Children leave our activities with their own artworks to take home, and parents leave with an information pack about the history and background of the activity or art piece.
