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

HDLU connected this year’s educational program with the 7th Biennial of Painting, which for the 14th year has been positioned as the only national art manifestation dedicated to presenting the scene and developments in the medium of painting. In the first edition, 6 schools will participate (Ivan Merz Elementary School, Matko Laginja Elementary School, Marije Jurić Zagorka Elementary School, XVth Gymnasium, XVIth Gymnasium, Classical Gymnasium) with more than 120 students and 6 professors and teachers.
