Get Arty! with Mencap and AccessArt

Get Arty! with Mencap and AccessArt

AccessArt is pleased to announce a brand new initiative with Mencap and we’d love your school to join us!

Get Arty! is about bringing everyone together to take part in accessible creative activities which celebrate our unique personalities.

Get Arty! is aimed at children from ages 5 to 11 and we’re inviting schools across the UK to take part during Learning Disability Week in June. However if you’d prefer to run a Get Arty! day at any other time, as part of your Art Week, Charity Week or Anti Bullying Week, for example, then that would be great too.

AccessArt has helped shape the Get Arty! concept and developed the art activities that you will find in the Get Arty! pack. See links to the activities below.

How it works

It’s easy to take part. Just sign up to the Get Arty! mailing list below via Mencap. In March Mencap will send you a free Get Arty! pack that includes:

  • Art activities, devised by AccessArt, that are fun and easy to deliver
  • Lesson/assembly plans that you can adapt to your school’s needs
  • Resources to teach children about learning disability – including a video and presentation
    various other creative and fundraising ideas that can be delivered in your school.
