Kia ora - welcome to Arts Online

We are preparing to close Arts Online on 29 March 2024 as this content is moving to Tāhūrangi . 

  • Tāhūrangi is the new online curriculum hub for Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education.
    • We have moved relevant and up-to-date teaching resources from Arts online to Tāhūrangi.
  • As a consequence, from the end of March, most content will no longer be available on this website.
    • Before the end of March, we’ll provide information about accessing Creatives in Schools content.
    • If there are specific materials from the website you need, we recommend you download them before the end of March.   
    • If you think a resource should be publicly available, please email us a copy of the resource at  curriculum.publishing@education.govt.nz  and we will consider this as part of our overall migration process.

Arts Online is the key communication network and quality resource portal for New Zealand arts education.

There are three main sections to the site – teaching and learning resources, planning tools to support curriculum development, and email-based communities of practice for each of the arts disciplines.

The site also offers digistories, case studies, monthly newsletters and an option to share your local news events. All feedback is most welcome.
