Introducing AccessArt…

AccessArt Launches its New Primary Art Curriculum!

“We wanted to create an art curriculum which would help primary schools deliver a really exciting, rich and forward thinking visual arts education, whilst at the same time giving non-specialist and often inexperienced teachers the support they need to feel confident and happy teaching art.”

We hope you enjoy exploring. Thank you to the Team for months of hard work and to the many experts who gave advice during its formation. 

Best wishes, Paula Briggs, Creative Director, AccessArt

The AccessArt Drawing Journey for Ages 5 to 11

The AccessArt Drawing Journey is our latest offering to Primary Schools. 

Drawing skills underpin so many aspects of the visual arts. Use the carefully curated resources in the AccessArt Drawing Journey to help build both skills and enjoyment of drawing for all pupils (and teachers!). 

“The AccessArt Drawing Journey has been so cleverly put together. We’re really looking forward to using it across the school.”
