The Primary Art Curriculum
AccessArt has many years experience in helping schools (and the wider community) deliver high quality visual arts teaching. Our core aim is to raise the quality of visual arts teaching and learning through sharing inspirational practice.
Teaching art should be rewarding, and our curriculum planning advice will help teachers build their own facilitation skills, as well as providing comprehensive and creative activities for children.
Over the course of a year, AccessArt worked with Kate Noble, and the Fitzwilliam Museum Learning Team, to inspire primary school teachers, in and around Cambridgeshire, to take a closer look at Cupid and Psyche by Jacopo Del Sellaio to inspire creative responses by pupils in their schools.
This collection of AccessArt resources both documents the Inspire journey and signposts AccessArt posts which supported the teachers. Follow this link to find out more about Del Sellaio’s Cupid and Psyche as well as Renaissance processes and Inspire 2020 resources for teachers.
