The Sajja Arts regularly works with young people to address core themes and subjects on the national curriculum. The popular ‘themed week’ allows school students to work alongside a team of creative practitioners to creatively explore a theme or subject through a series of creative workshops delivered on the school site.
Workshops are delivered in school time and are flexible depending on individual school requirements. Students will work in groups with an experienced creative practitioner towards a series of goals set out by teachers and workshop leaders.
Workshops will also encouraged young people to explore learning creatively and nurtured essential skills such as self-awareness, working in a team and taking initiative.
In past school projects we have addressed a variety of subjects and themes and produced a range of work. For a list of theme ideas why not check out our theme page where you can find a long list of ideas for your school. Here are a few examples:
•Space & The Solar System
•Global Village •Films & Stories
We believe that the young people should be at the heart of the decision making process and allowed to express themselves in a creative manner. Past projects have helped young people to become more confident and astute individuals as well as improving self confidence and team working skills.
Students will work towards a number of outcomes with the main emphasise being a performance, showcase, play or film that can be shared with teachers, family and fellow students.
