    Just read this excellent article and it got me thinking. Why don’t we get parents involved more too. Last year I took 45 yr 9 s up to London for four days doing everything from drawing in the V&A , Tate modern, drama workshop at the globe and seeing a production , seeing Billy Elliott, gamelan workshop at Royal College of Music, guide tour of House of Parliament and sitting in on a live debate in both House of Lords & Commons – the one thing parents kept saying was I wish it was me and that included the drawing part too – so my question is should I open up the summer drawing course as 18+ to my parents too or would that be inappropriate?

      Completely agree! Sounds amazing what you are doing and agree that parents are very best placed often to enrich creativity in a school. Giving parents creative opportunities sounds wonderful. AccessArt are in the process of developing pages specifically parents – pointers on what they can bring to the table and get involved in a school’s creative development – whether it be establishing an ‘art club’ or joining the Governors as an ambassador for creativity. Thanks very much for your comment. Best wishes, Sheila (AccessArt)
