About us

Avniarts is a non-profit organisation based in the UK, the purpose of which is to provide teachers with resources on cultural diversity and global citizenship. It has been set up by a teacher and consultant, Punam Behl. She has been joined by other teachers who have worked extensively as consultants at both school and local authority level.

We believe that schools have the responsibility to provide children with the skills, knowledge and inspiration to become architects of a better world. Children's knowledge of, and respect for, other cultures is enhanced when global issues relating to equity and social justice are made clear.  With this in mind our website provides teachers with a depth and range of information as well as teaching aids.


Future publications

Avniarts will be publishing resources featuring arts and crafts from different cultures. We are currently working on and will publish multimedia teaching packs. Each teaching pack will consist of a teacher’s guide and a DVD. Artists and craftsman will be filmed at work in their countries and the film clips will be integrated with interactive whiteboard software. The first of the series will focus on the craft of block printing in India.
