The Schools Art Project - Art Projects for Schools

Creative fundraising ideas for schools


Everyone benefits when fundraising for schools through art projects. Why not make it part of your school’s art week?

The Schools Art Project enables children to develop and celebrate their creativity and turn it into something enduring like a t-shirt, mousemat, shopping bag or tea towel. Not only that, it is a terrific opportunity to raise the profile of art and design in your school. You can even invite parents, relations, teachers and community groups to submit designs and place orders. APFS provide ideas and techniques online for each class teacher which will continue to give inspiration long after the project has finished.

The Schools Art Project is available all year round. It is one of many creative fundraising ideas from APFS, and, because it places minimal demand on school resources and teachers’ time, it’s simple to put into practice. Children will enjoy the process of creating a piece of art that will have a life beyond the end of the lesson and feel a real sense of pride in their endeavours when they see the finished product. If you have any queries, please call our experienced team of advisors on 0800 027 1939.
