Art Rooms in KS1 & KS2 Schools

During 2016 AccessArt will be exploring how the creation of dedicated art and design spaces in primary schools can impact upon the whole school. Whilst many schools are struggling to find time and space for art, others are demonstrating the beneficial affect an art room can have across the curriculum. We will be creating a series of exemplar posts which share how art rooms have been financed and developed - if you would like your art room (KS 1 and 2) to be featured here, then please get in touch.

The following articles explore:

How do art rooms act as catalyst for changing attitudes to art in schools

Future articles will explore:

What schools can do if they don't have space for a dedicated art room

Planning for an art room in new builds... What makes an art room?
