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:

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


InspirED Somerset

InspirED is a consortium of Somerset arts organisations - comprising Somerset Art Works, Somerset Film, SPAEDA and Take Art - bringing the skills and expertise of arts and media professionals direct to schools, colleges and children’s centres across the county.

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.
