Sky Arts ‘Access All Arts’ Week

Access All Arts week is a nationwide, week-long celebration of the arts, specially designed for primary schools. Between 19 – 23 June 2023 you’ll be able to take your pupils on a creative adventure with a whole host of brand-new resources. For 2023 our theme will be identity and pupils will be encouraged to use the arts to explore their own individuality and what makes each one of us unique. Our brand new, completely free, curriculum linked resources for 2023 are now live and available for you to download in the Resource Centre. They will guide you each step of the way, with ready-to-teach lesson plans and activity sheets covering ten different art forms.

“Taking part in Sky Arts Access All Arts Week was tremendous fun for our staff and children. The lessons and resources gave our children the opportunity to learn about engaging and exciting artists and added depth to our art curriculum. Our children were very proud of the work they produced during this week, which is vital for developing confident, independent artists.”

Mandy Barrett

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the amazing Sky Arts Week! The lessons and resources were fantastic and just having an arts week inspired Nursery to Year 6 to create amazing cross- curricular arts related work. It was a super week – super busy but super creative and all the teachers and children loved every minute of it! The consensus was we should all do it more often!”
