SAW aims to embed learning throughout all our activity and develops learning programmes to enable professional artists to work with schools and communities.

Our learning programme provides opportunities for participants of all ages to deepen their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art, to raise expectations, develop personal creativity, learn new skills and to be inspired!

SAW’s current delivery includes three main strands:

Project delivery in local communities
InspirED Somerset Arts Education
Somerset Art Weeks Learning Programme


Somerset Art Weeks Education Programme

Annual education resources to encourage schools to get involved with Somerset Art Weeks


Since 2002 SAW has worked with a wide range of arts and non-art partners, providing opportunities for communities to work collaboratively with professional artists and encourage wider participation in the arts.

Primary Arts Toolkit: Ideas and Resources for Schools

How do you plan an Arts Week and why is it a great idea for your school? SAW and Sara Dudman have created a toolkit packed with ideas, top tips, examples and resources to guide and inspire you in leading and organising your own school Arts Week.
