Zart Extra Newsletter

The Zart Extra is published quarterly by Zart Education, a division of Zart. This publication is mailed out to schools at the beginning of each term. This newsletter allows art teachers/co-ordinators to learn about what is happening in art education and what other art teachers are doing. You will find information on new art techniques and processes, the latest materials and resources on the market.

Please note, all prices quoted in our Newsletters are valid for the duration of that term only and are subject to change without notice.
