Get Arty! is a  new project with a simple aim: to get children enthused about art and more accepting of "difference" – and in particular, learning disability – inside and outside of the classroom.

If you're a primary school teacher looking for an exciting way for children to make art, Get Arty! could be just the thing for you.
