Independent Arts has long been inspiring and challenging the Island’s school children with its exciting, practitioner-led arts activities, boosting wellbeing and enriching the curriculum.

If you’re a teacher in an Island school, we’d love to work with you: whether on one of our existing funded programmes; supporting your ArtMark journey; or creating a bespoke workshop for your pupils.
