What people have said about our work…
Sarah, Mum from Nottinghamshire
WOW! What a fantastic party. My son had a wonderful 9th Birthday party thanks to James at ImageSkool. Both my son and his friends are still talking about it days after the event. James is an amazing artist and great with the children encouraging them and guiding them with their artwork while keeping each piece individual to that child. For an affordable and memorable party that is also new and exciting I definitely suggest you hire James at ImageSkool it will be your best party!
Community Development Worker
I am writing to offer my full support to the work of Imageskool.
In my work as a Community Development Worker I have witnessed their effect on young people and how their work has had an impact on the neighbourhood.
Recently Imageskool worked with a group of twelve young people from an area that falls within the top three percent of deprived areas of the country. James worked with the group on designing artwork that was placed in an area by the local shops. This area had been untidy for a number of years. Prior to the project local shop-owners did not believe that it would improve the area and thought that it would encourage more graffiti. The Project was completed six weeks ago and there has been no damage. Not only did young people feel a sense of achievement, local residents have seen the improvement in the physical appearance of the area.
The design is now to be used as a front cover in welcome packs for new residents moving into the area.
This would not have been a success without the excellent relationship that James built with the young people over a short period time. We now are faced with young people asking us when James is coming back. I am in no doubt that we will use these services again in the near future.

I felt the need to write you a letter of appreciation. For the six weeks you have been working in conjunction with Lincolnshire Police with the FRIDAY NIGHT PROJECT, based in Market Rasen we have had nothing but good feedback from both, the youth and adult population of Market Rasen.
Your communication skills with teenagers on the project has helped us break down a lot of barriers with what we class as a hard to reach community. I hope too that with our involvement, Lincolnshire Police have become a tool that the youth service will use for other upcoming activities.
All the best for your future endeavours,
Play Development Coordinator
James worked with children’s Links and 40 children and young people in Brookenby village this half term on a grafitti inspired project. The event attracted a wide mix of ages, talents and skills and an opportunity for children and young people in the village to work and socialise together.
James is an experienced workshop leader and is able to coordinate the different styles and skills of an inexperienced group to create a finished piece of art work that they can clearly identify as their own and feel proud to have acheived.
Our three days with him were relaxed yet purposeful and the project kick started a series of opportunities for us to continue working with the young people in the village.

James showed me part of his portfolio, and his talents in everything from screen-printing to film work and custom toy workshops are quite staggering, with his work exhibited everywhere from LA to Melbourne.

James’s work is inspirational, and the pupils’ interest in what little time he has spent in the school is a testament to his overwhelming drive and passion for art!
