first school visit

Becky reports:

This month the TALE project’s first school research visit took place at Thomas Tallis School in Kidbrooke, London. The school has a long history of art and creative education and it was fascinating to see the ‘TALLIS HABITS,’ developed with researchers for Creativity, Culture and Education in 2012 (reported here), so strongly in evidence in school lesson planning and visibly around the school.

The habits were clearly important to the young people I spoke to too. It was interesting also to hear about the young people’s own arts’ practice being discussed and shared in the school and indeed the corridors being fully utilised as studio space.

Lots of rich data was collected and dynamic discussions entered into with staff and students.
