ArtsDrop is a set of downloadable arts-themed resources for schools and families, linked to the curriculum. 

The ArtsDrop resource packs are created by the Southbank Centre to provide educational activities for children. Teachers or adults need to provide some guidance so that kids can make the best use of ArtsDrop.

We have worked with artists and educators to build packs that support children’s creative learning.

We hope you enjoy using ArtsDrop. Share your creations on social media by tagging us @southbankcentre or by emailing our schools team at [email protected]
