Get started

Get started

All of the challenges in Your Art World are open-ended to encourage children and young people to lead their own learning. The getting started resources are designed to support learners to think for themselves, identify what matters to them and harness their imagination without relying on a grown-up to tell them what to do. 

How to experiment

Your Art World

Every term we’ll post a new set of art challenges designed by children, for children. We want to inspire you to think, wonder, make and share your art in our online gallery. It could be 2D, 3D, film, animation, performance, writing or anything else you can think of.
