Our story

Art Projects for Schools, established in 1987, is the leading supplier of fundraising creative projects to primary schools. Constantly innovating, our most popular project, The Christmas Card Project, has seen the transformation of 220,000 artworks into almost 6 million Christmas cards over the 8 weeks leading up to Christmas in one year.

Ex-teacher and Founder of APFS Dan Dickey puts this success down to a simple ethos: “Art Projects For Schools exists to raise the profile of Art in schools, give children hands-on experience of the design process and generate money for the school. We also realise the pressures schools are under and so have developed an online process which eliminates 90% of the workload.”

Whether you are a parent, a teacher, an art facilitator, a PTA member, or simply an art enthusiast, we hope that you enjoy visiting our site, either to find out more about our fundraising projects, or to take a look at our creative resources.
