AccessArt is an Artsmark Partner Organisation

Artsmark places creativity at the heart of education.

“Artsmark enables schools and education settings to celebrate and advocate for the value of cultural education, and gives schools and education settings a clear framework to plan, develop and evaluate arts and cultural provision. It provides evidence for Ofsted on how you meet its spiritual, moral, social and cultural requirements, supporting the wellbeing of pupils.”  – Norfolk and Norwich Festival Bridge.

Working alongside the Artsmark framework, AccessArt can support your school in achieving your Artsmark aims, and enable all your teachers to successfully embed the visual arts into all aspects of the curriculum. 

We want to support teachers in exploring their own creativity and to grow their confidence in exploring art in the classroom, regardless of background and skill.

Our CPD and InSET sessions are available for Primary, Secondary and SEND settings, and can be scheduled as a half day, full day, or twilight booking. We can deliver bespoke sessions focused on the drawing basics right the way through to colour work, sketchbook skills and printmaking.
