The links between art and literature are profound and expansive and there is no doubt that historically and culturally they have lived side by side since the dawn of civilization and breathe life into each other.
As well as an avenue to explore text and meaning through illustrative practice, Art can be used as part of the creative process to aid in the building and inventing of stories. Literature can be used to invoke responses and as a springboard for making art and inventing new means of manipulating the material world.
Here we have collected some AccessArt resources which we feel might help illustrate the relationship between Literacy and Art and how they thrive together!
If you are an artist or teacher who would like to share Art projects which support Literacy and vice-versa – please get in touch!
