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.


A World Inside a Book

Explore the worlds of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler in our multi-sensory, immersive exhibition. These interactive sessions take children to the heart of some of the UK’s most beloved children’s books. Pupils will explore familiar stories in a whole new way, discover worlds of imagination and create new stories and ideas of their own to take away.

What we offer

We work in partnership with schools to develop projects which complement school topics and themes, tackle specific attainment targets, or support the needs of identified student groups.

Our offer includes: Masterclasses, Creative Classrooms, After-school Clubs, Cultural Diversity, Bright Ideas, SWITCH Transitions, Family Engagement, Work Experience and a year round programme of Big Imaginations theatre shows and events.

We are proud to be an Arts Award Centre and an Arts Award supporter. Through our programmes, we can support individual pupils to achieve accreditation through Arts Award at Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold level.

Our Creative Connections schools annual membership programme enables us to work with teachers and leadership staff to plan and deliver a bespoke 12-month Action Plan.
