“It's very difficult to put into words the wonderful learning experiences that I've had the pleasure to enjoy over the past 8 years, having worked with John and Debbie of Protean Art.
As a training programme director for general practice speciality training we will discuss a 'brief'; a theme for the day and some key concepts we wish to deliver to the delegates (trainees, trainers and programme directors over the years). John and Debbie have, time and time again, delivered amazing art based learning which reaches, the often untapped or undervalued, areas of the brains of us medics. Throughout the sessions they seamlessly layer and shape the parallels of the artistic elements of the day and the medical educational theme underpinning it.
Some of our delegates have been admittedly 'well outside of their comfort zone' at the start of the day, but John and Debbie's carefully crafted sessions allow each individual to participate and many have left finding a new comfort zone and having a newfound belief in themselves - this being in addition to the medical learning element.
The feedback from our delegates is always superbly positive when Protean Art have visited”
