Briony Jenkins and the team at Pigeon first splashed paint in a classroom in 1999, and since then they’ve just got bolder and brighter. The team have a passion for helping schools with personalised art projects, and specialise in helping schools to devise the right project for their needs.
At Pigeon Art Workshops we love children’s art and all of the things they make. We never run a session where we don’t see something amazing being made by someone. We like their dribbles and blobs, their mistakes and upside down bits. We like the way they see the world and how they go about showing it.
