Artyface have designed and created many fabulous mosaics, ceramic and painted murals while building strong links between schools and partners. They enjoy discussing and delivering your art project ideas and run successful INSETS while encouraging green-mosaics (re-using and recycling). Artyface Community Art have been working with schools, councils and architects, providing quality workshops for 4,000+ students every year for 12 years. They have many happy customers and are often invited back to schools every few years to work on a new project.
the creative input of your whole community: the design of our pieces is a direct result of fun, friendly and inclusive workshops with the residents, users or schoolchildren who will benefit from the project.
your art project to the context and heritage of your community: through historical and contemporary research, we work with themes which are relevant to place, people and background.
a lasting legacy to future community members: Artyface works are always designed and built to last both through time and the elements, while keeping to budgets closely discussed and planned with you.
Artyface is an experienced, dynamic professional and inspirational community arts organization (with a pool of 10 specialists), led by artist Maud Milton. They were front cover of The Independent Education Supplement summer 2010 and their ceramic and mosaic projects have really excelled over the past years.
Artyface specialise in transforming public and private spaces. Their expertise is ceramics and mosaics, as well as painted projects. Working closely with the community ensures the finished work is a legacy that belongs to you and is of a very high quality: the projects are drawn, designed and made with pupils. Artyface facilitate people of all ages and abilities working together in teams, co-operating and communicating with teachers, parents, dinner ladies, cleaners and even siblings and grandparents participating.
They are experts at working with your ideas, budgets, enthusiasm and space. Projects enrich education, teaching many different skills, teamwork, discovering, developing and nurturing talents. Some are quick and easy to run, whereas others are fantastic, legacy projects that take longer to make.
Every project is bespoke. Winn’s Primary School’s project involved every child going to draw local historical buildings. With the pupils participation, Artyface artists translated these into wonderful clay tiles and mosaics for a huge mural for the playground including William Morris motifs on the border as he lived locally. Other themes have included anniversaries; the local area; celebrating the theory of evolution; endangered species worldwide; multi-cultural patterns - inspired by the Quilt exhibition at the Victoria and Albert: but your theme can be anything. Costs and timescale vary depending on materials and size etc.
All projects boost the arts and other curriculum targets, building bridges between people, places and organizations. Some murals build links between secondary schools and their feeder primaries, others simply transform a dull area into a more beautiful place which everyone can be proud of. Artyface teachers are all experienced at communication, research, teaching and making, as well as being inspiring and empathetic to work with, bringing new skills, volunteers, partners and enthusiasm into your school.
"We were looking for something really special to set off our new building as well as improving the street-scape and Artyface delivered. Our brief included east meets west artistic traditions and, by liaising with a local museum, this was achieved in a stunning way. The children learnt much and really enjoyed making a mosaic they can be rightly proud of."“I am absolutely delighted by the buzz that has been created in our school by the fantastic mural work. This is really what is meant by a whole school project - it's a real community effort. Maud and her team have been an absolute pleasure to work with.”
