As with all AccessArt resources and approaches, the AccessArt Enquiry-Based Pathways for Teenagers are based upon pedagogical understanding transferred and adapted from other settings. By this, we mean for example, understanding how creative adults inspire and enable their own creativity, and adapting this understanding to make it applicable and available to teenagers. Or exploring how art schools nurture creative thought and action, and applying adapted techniques to the secondary phase. Or exploring the drivers which make art relevant to all our lives, and sharing these with young people. Through the act of drawing down (and up) best practice ensures the visual arts education we offer young teenagers is relevant, challenging and exciting.
