AccessArt Participatory Projects

For many years now AccessArt has been creating online participatory projects which aim to draw in new audiences, and to give those involved the opportunity to join in a shared experience and explore new materials, techniques and ideas. The projects are always inclusive and welcoming to all ages, all abilities, all backgrounds…

Enjoy exploring all our participatory projects below. Make sure you are registered top left to ensure you hear when new projects are launched. Please share this page using #artparticipate.

Many of our online participatory projects are time sensitive in terms of their being a gallery to upload to for example. However we have listed all our projects below, as even those which have finished still offer inspiration in the form of free PDF’s to download etc.

Ten Minutes, Five Times a Week

Ten Minutes, Five Times a Week is a simple set of drawing exercises designed to get people drawing. Aimed at a broad audience, but designed in particular with teachers in mind, we hope you will use Ten Minutes, Five Times a Week as a way to introduce drawing to your pupils, and to begin to explore how AccessArt can help enrich art teaching and learning in your school.
