How does AccessArt Approach Journey?

AccessArt aims to inspire and enable a number of key areas of exploration:

  • We open up what “drawing” can be, both in terms of how we make a drawing, and the purpose of drawing.

  • We balance opportunities for skill development with opportunities for novelty and experimentation.

  • We build opportunities to explore how drawing relates to other disciplines and areas. 

  • We look at the work of other artists who use drawing in their practice.

  • We build understanding of how we can progress skills in a holistic way.

Develop Your Understanding

It’s important that as artists and educators we remember that drawing, as both activity and outcome, can serve many different purposes, and can be many different things. By ensuring we embrace all that “drawing” is, we can ensure that drawing is relevant and enjoyable to as many people as possible.

Develop your understanding of drawing.
