Workshop Testimonials

Nicola worked with Cookham Rise Primary School as part of an artist in residence project in the Spring of 2011. The project involved working with two hundred children to produce a huge sculpture of an owl. As part of this, children also took part in workshops to explore mark making and printing. Nicola also led staff development sessions that were truly inspirational and gave staff the confidence to develop ideas further.

From the initial beginnings of this project right through to the end, Nicola gave a huge amount of time, energy and enthusiasm. Prior to work with the children beginning, time was willingly spent planning and gathering resources. Her calm and professional manner when communicating with the children was exemplary.

Following the residency, children’s work was exhibited as part of the Cookham Arts Festival where it received a wealth of complimentary comments. Nicola made a really positive contribution to our Arts education and it was a pleasure having her in School.

Sara O’Mahony, Art leader

Nicola made a huge contribution to our school ‘Art Week’. She had very high expectations of what we would be able to achieve and, with a good deal of her time, support and leadership we got there!

Nicola was calm and patient working with children of all ages and abilities and was able to encourage and motivate even the most reluctant staff and children.

She showed a huge level of commitment to the project and we could not have achieved what we did without her. I hope that we are able to work with her again in the future.

Helen Daniels, Headteacher
