Opportunities for InspirED Schools 2019


NEW 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? Help is at hand!

Based on a wealth of experience supporting schools in Somerset, InspirED has 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.

Reuse and Recycle – Artist Workshops

An opportunity to work with a professional artist to make beautiful sculptural artworks using discarded materials, especially plastic, an environmental project highlighting waste in the oceans. More info: beccy.swaine@somersetartworks.org.uk
