Building Understanding in Drawing

Aims and Intent

“As educators, it is important that we develop our own understanding of what drawing can be. We can then ensure we open up drawing so that it is accessible to all learners.” Paula Briggs

At AccessArt we want to enable educators to plan a dynamic and rewarding creative education in drawing for ALL learners. AccessArt’s ethos is to aim high: we want to make sure we do our learners justice in terms of feeding their creative development. But we also need to make sure non-specialist or inexperienced educators feel encouraged and enabled to be ambitious in what they teach.
