Multiply

 

 

What is Multiply? 

Multiply is a national fund aiming to help adults aged 19+ improve their numeracy skills. It is specifically for those who have *less than a level 2 math’s (That’s a GCSE or O level grade C or above or a CSE level 1) or who have a need to refresh their skills.

What’s maths got to do with art? 

Well actually you might be surprised at just how much maths you are using when making art, without even realizing it!  Our range of multiply courses will help you to feel more confident about your number skills whilst producing your own fantastic artwork.

All Multiply courses are completely FREE for eligible learners*, and learners will also receive a pack of lovely art materials to take away with them at the end of the course.
