Take a look at the ways we can work together below.

Workshops

We offer a range of creative educational workshops that have been designed with the curriculum in mind. Sessions can be adapted to tie-in with specific topics or themes your students are currently studying. All of our workshops can contribute to Arts Award and Artsmark. Take a look at the workshops we offer below.

Artsmark

Wigan STEAM is proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture. As firm believers in the STEAM concept, embedding arts and creativity into a range of subjects is what we do, and we hope to support as many schools as we can in doing so. 

Arts Award

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world. We are an Arts Award Supporter and offer a range of workshops, events and experiences that can contribute to and enrich your students' Arts Award journey. 

Exhibition Visits

We are home to a gallery space and put on a programme of exhibitions by artists from across the UK, whose work links with themes of science, technology, engineering and maths. 
We offer free guided visits of our exhibitions and provide a free education pack with each exhibition that will enable teachers to build activity around the exhibition visit. 

CPD

We offer a range of CPD sessions that equip teachers with new creative and technical skills, whilst encouraging them to consider how the arts can be embedded into their teaching of all subjects. We offer sessions that cover subjects from creative coding and electronics, to hands-on making such as weaving and ceramics.

Long-term Projects

We’re always excited at the prospect of working with a school on a longer-term project. This might be a programme of in-class workshops or CPD workshops, an after-school club, or even a school-wide arts project to produce a large-scale outcome such as a collaborative mural or sculpture - the possibilities are endless.
