The CreArt Educational Program is part of the European project CreArt 3.0 and aims to improve collaboration between local schools, cultural institutions, non-governmental organizations, and independent professionals and companies in the cultural and creative sectors. The program builds and strengthens intergenerational connections, creates a network for cultural education exchange, and encourages future participation of school children in the cultural life of the city. Over the course of 3 years, the program will involve 76 schools in the partner cities of the project, more than 4,500 students and teachers, and 47 artists. 

This year, HDLU (Croatian Association of Fine Artists) has connected its educational program with the 7th Biennial of Painting, which for 14 years has positioned itself as the only national visual arts event dedicated to documenting the scene and shifts in the medium of painting.
