The Company of International Artists: Museum Takeover!

commissioned by Bristol Museums (2022)


Secretly, on certain Mondays in 2022, when Bristol Museum & Art Gallery is closed to the public, Agents Kahlo and Dali slipped, incognito, into the museum on Park Street in Bristol.


The nature of their activity has been, until now, strictly TOP SECRET.

But the embargo has recently been lifted, and we can reveal that they were making brand new creative missions about Bristol Museum & Art Gallery's art collection for families & schools to enjoy!


There are three missions to complete. They are all free of charge, and encourage families to investigate the art at the museum, and then to create new art inspired by the artwork featured in each mission. Art will be showcased both on the Company of International Artists social media, and on big screens in the Museum.

The first mission will be launched in April 2023.
Watch this space, agents!

The Company of International Artists in schools!

We can run full day events in primary schools, inspiring and supporting children to investigate art, create themselves and gain a Discover level Arts Award certificate.


We have been awarded Trinity Champion Status for our outstanding and innovative delivery of Arts Award courses.  See how this worked at a school in south Bristol. 

If you would like to investigate how the Company of International Artists could run an Arts Award course in your school, alternative education provision or home education group, please contact

The Company of International Artists in Museums!

The Company of International Artists was delighted to receive a digital commission to work with Gloucestershire Libraries and the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, as part of the Art of Libraries project.

We created a bespoke mission about artefacts from the Corinium Museum including the famous Hare Mosaic, and designed a simple kit of creative resources which were taken to rural schools in the Cotswolds by the Gloucester Libraries schools' librarian.

Children took the missions and kits home, and created new art inspired from the artefacts at Corinium Museum. These families were also invited to join a special online mission, and to show Agents Kahlo, Dali & Bourgeois the art they made.

This film encouraged the agents to complete The Corinium Mission.

We were commissioned by Dorset Museum to design a bespoke Creative Mission to help families explore the ancient Roman artefacts uncovered at the Roman Town House in Dorchester.

The Company of International Artists workshops

As experienced creative educators, we are often asked to run workshops. We call these "Creative Missions." They are a blend of art history investigations, hands-on creativity and songwriting and are led by Agents Kahlo and Dali.


We have provided Creative Missions for: Children's World Charity, Chippenham Fringe, Calne Town Council, Dorset Music Service, Shaftesbury Fringe Festival, ValleyFest, LakeFest and are shortly presenting a series of monthly missions in south Bristol.
Details are below.
