You can use the resources now and in to the future, it is important for the project that we know you are using them. All the information you need is available on the project website in the resources section . If you would like to be involved please complete the form below.


What you will do

The project has made a primary level course on the environment that includes different art forms. Each school can use one or as many parts of the course as they wish.


You will need to request that a page is created on ARTinED Wiki for your school so you share in text, pictures and videos the work your students have completed. Just write to with the name of the school, after you register on the wiki (full name please).
