In 2020, we collaborated with the Young Urban Arts Foundation to host an exclusive performance and lyric-writing workshop for staff, children and young people from South East settings on their Artsmark journey. Led by Mister Lees from YUAF this inspiring event explored warm-ups, concepts, lyric writing and rehearsals to enhance the participant’s abilities to write and perform songs.

To accompany the event, all attendees got access to a resource booklet and set of video tutorials. Containing lesson plans in both songwriting and performance, with versions aimed at a range of key stages- and suggestions for how to adapt for other settings – the resource allows the workshop to be replicated within participant’s own classrooms.

Extracts from this resource booklet can now be downloaded below [PDFs]:

Part 1 – Introduction to Young Urban Arts Foundation, Mister Lees and the Art of Performance and Lyric Writing; Tips to prepare for and deliver song-writing workshops

Part 2 – Songwriting lesson plans; Introduction to Performance session plan

Part 3 – Performance lesson plan (part 2); Tips for adapting these lesson plans

This resource, and the accompanying set of videos, was created for our free Artsmark Celebration Event, exclusively for schools in the South East on their Artsmark journey. It can be used support a setting on their Artsmark journey by showing how to plan an arts activity, and evaluate and evidence its impact. It also demonstrates how to link Arts Council England’s Quality Principles when planning and implementing an arts activity.

Awarded by Arts Council England, Artsmark supports schools and education settings to embed arts, culture and creativity in their curriculum. We are pleased to offer Artsmark settings in the South East have access to a range of exclusive events and resources on their Artsmark journey. To find out more, click here
