  • Everyone




How can children and teens manage anxiety in uncertain times? How can we proactively support student mental health? And how can we change the future of teaching, to put empathy and wellbeing front and centre?

Join Keith Brymer-Jones, Master Potter and Judge of the Great Pottery Throwdown, to explore art as a means to combat stress and anxiety. In a world where students are encountering untold stress, we’ll look at the restorative effects of practising art - and the evidence base behind this.

We’ll also look at how you can easily integrate art into your teaching - and how this can immediately benefit your students’ wellbeing.

We’ll be joined by experts from the Oxford Brookes MA Education programme and students from Bexhill College.
