Sky Arts Access All Arts Week is a nationwide arts week for primary schools. Access All Arts Week 2024 takes place from 17th – 21st June.

Working with leading arts organisations and a host of artists, Access All Arts Week provides a ready-made programme of free learning materials covering five different areas of artistic expression, each containing two different art forms:

  • Sounds – Singing and Instruments
  • Marks – 2D Mark Making and 3D Mark Making
  • Words – Poetry and Storytelling
  • Images – Photography and Filmmaking
  • Moves – Movement and Drama

Each module can be taught individually as a stand-alone unit or can be joined together to form a longer programme. Resources are designed to be easily adapted so that teachers can make the week their own.

Cost: Free with registration.
