“The Access Art website is brilliant at supporting Art Educators like myself – it is really one of a kind and I’ve not come across anything like it in the UK”

AccessArt has been working to support artist educators in the UK and overseas since 1999.

AccessArt believes artists can make excellent educators. Creative practitioners of all levels are often uniquely placed to inspire others. AccessArt is proud to be able to help support your work as an artist educator in the following ways:

All the resources on the AccessArt website are based upon tried and tested artist-led teaching which can be adapted to a number of contexts.

Our resources are used by artist educators, facilitators and teachers working in schools, galleries and museums, and community settings. Find out more

Wherever you live, whatever your art form, we would love to hear from you if you would like to share a teaching idea. Sharing a teaching idea can help boost your profile as an educator, help give your projects a lasting legacy, and help inspire other educators. Read More
