I have taken a look at these websites to help me create a really successful workshop I want the children to have the best possible experience and be engaged with the artwork.  Looking at these websites one realised that the lessons need to be simples and engaging. The children need to have a choice of materials but not be overwhelmed by the range of materials on offer. Its very important for these children to have a short demo so they can have an idea of what to do.

The lesson should be very free and expressive and many of the children can't follow difficult instructions. Many of the children struggle with their grip so working with paint and rubbing can't be a great way to get them involved.

The workshop we create should be something brand new to stimulate the children so they can learn new skills and have new experiences.
