ArtForms Arts Development

Arts Make A Difference: inspire, engage, achieve


ArtForms is the Music and Arts Service. The Arts Team work with teachers to deliver a rich and broad arts curriculum. Our aim is to foster pupils’ sense of enjoyment and fulfilment in learning in order to raise their attainment in the arts and across the curriculum.


The Arts touch all aspects of our lives. They support the development of knowledge and skills, raise confidence and self-esteem, impact on health and wellbeing and can be truly life enhancing.

The Arts Team has many years’ experience of working with teachers, artists, children and young people. As part of the 0-19 Learning Improvement Team, we have specialist knowledge of education and the arts.

Our offer includes:

  • Strategic leadership and support for teachers with responsibility for art/the arts
  • Bespoke 1:1 support to address specific school priorities
  • A menu of training across Art, D&T and other art forms

In addition, we work closely with partners across the cultural sector in Leeds to initiate and broker rich arts and cultural opportunities for schools to engage with.
