Creative Learning in Schools

Z-arts is dedicated to inspiring creativity in children and young people. We do this through an exciting programme of Creative Learning, working with nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools to deliver workshops and projects across the arts.

All our Creative Learning activity is delivered by experienced artist educators and freelance professionals who share our passion and enthusiasm.
