AccessArt is a Registered Charity and membership organisation that works to assist teachers, artists, gallery workers and other art educators to share resources & ideas in order to help inspire the next generation of creative individuals.
The DrawAble programme has been developed in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, to provide schools with accessible and high-quality resources designed with the following requirements in mind:
The resources can be delivered directly to pupils working from home, or accessed in school, so that all pupils can enjoy a comparative experience.
The resources provide everything a teacher or parent needs to encourage holistic, high quality creative learning, at an inclusive and gentle pace.
The activities are sensitively devised and appropriate for children re-emerging into school life, or not yet re-emerging into school life, with all the physical and emotional load which these children may carry.
The activities are safe activities for bubbles – for example, they do not promote sharing of materials, or encourage queuing around sinks for water etc.
The resources will provide opportunities for teachers to link a number of areas of the curriculum including art, literacy, history, geography and PSHE, and at the same time to think carefully about what pupils might need in terms of a recovery-based curriculum which supports wellbeing.
