Sketchbooks as a tool for learning and creativity

Spaeda is 20 this year and to celebrate 20 Somerset Arts Leaders are collaborating on a sketchbook journey with us throughout 2020!

Switchbook 2020

This February we launched Switchbook 2020, which brings arts leaders together to share skills and collaborate using sketchbooks and journals.

Spaeda’s sketchbook work has been recognised and shared as a model of innovative practice by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Art and Design. We continue to work with Exeter University and the National Society for Education in Art and Design to develop models that support and empower teachers and take arts education forward.

Application for this year’s sketchbook programme has now closed but we invite expressions of interest to take part in 2021 - get in touch if you'd like to find out more.
