Line Of Thought

The Benefits

 

What are the benefits of a Line Of Thought workshop for your museum, company or school?

Culture is the heartbeat of society. It allows to us to reflect on and shape the world around ourselves, as well as the world inside ourselves.

As the funding for the arts and art education continues to be cut in the UK, Line Of Thought’s mission is to provide adults and young people not only with practical skills in drawing, printmaking and writing, but also the tools to think independently, question one’s values and to learn through collaboration.

Yes, these qualities are essential for budding artists, but they are also invaluable professional and life skills. Sir Ken Robinson puts it best: “Creativity isn’t exclusive to the arts: It’s a function of intelligence. Any form of human intellectual activity is a scene of potential creative achievement.”

Our workshops are all about leaving you looking at the world a little bit differently than you did yesterday.
