Art in Education delivers dynamic, imaginative and multi-disciplinary creative education projects for a diverse range of people including toddlers, special needs individuals, young people, artists, adults, and the ‘general public’. A multitude of successful projects have been executed in major galleries and museums, special needs centres, infant, primary and secondary schools, hospitals and community groups.
Established by art educator Julie Beech, Art in Education delivers individually designed projects which draw on a variety of themes and art forms, often collaborating with other established artists, poets, circus performers, actors and musicians to facilitate inspiring, inclusive and imaginative projects with the aim of providing a platform for experiential, enthusiastic learning.

“Creative, hardworking and resourceful, Julie Beech is an inspirational educator. Her ability to communicate her passion and understanding of art is considerable but her real strength lies in her skill in unlocking the creativity of others. She engages easily and well with all ages and delivers focused and effective projects, even within challenging circumstances. She is also a joy to work with."
