Artsmark CPD

Creative classroom activities linked to the Artsmark framework

We've been working with a range of Artsmark Partners to create a library of short video CPD sessions for teachers.

Designed to fit more easily into school schedules, each session uses a different artform to address an area of the Artsmark Self-Assessment Framework and introduces teachers to a range of creative classroom activities.
