We offer an exciting and varied programme of CPD/CLPL workshops, as well as two free teacher previews this summer.  A new programme of CPDs will be released later in Autumn 2018 but we can arrange bespoke full school CPDs on request. Subject to availability.


We offer hands on activities looking at the techniques of the Jupiter artists as well as challenging children and young people to think about the relationship between art and nature at Jupiter and the conceptual content of the artwork. All sessions are linked to the curriculum and are relevant to all stages of the school and university syllabus. 
Workshops are also based on seasonally inspired themes, intertwining nature with the themes in the artists work. For example, making a “magic carpet” of autumn leaves in the vein of Andy Goldsworthy’s work, or making 'poison and antidote' rorschach prints after Cornelia Parker with seasonal berry juice. We can work outdoors at Jupiter Artland and create large scale works as well as on more intimate indoor projects in our Woodland classrooms.

“Our pupil feedback really shows the impact this trip had on our students and certainly the uptake by pupils who opted for S3 Art was fantastic and all pupils who attended the trip have gone onto take Art this current year."
- Ms Cochrane from Eyemouth High School 

“The art works here make you feel happy because it’s crazy, different and well thought-through. Coming here is like an adventure, like a treasure hunt where you discover all the sculptures.”
- P7 pupil Connor Preston from Juniper Green Primary
