DrawAble: Map of Resources to be Commissioned

The ideas below are a preliminary exploration of potential resources for the DrawAble project. They are shared in good faith in an open manner to help all involved visualise what the project may become.

The ideas are presented to open up a discussion and we welcome feedback from artist educators who would like to suggest a resource, or help create one of the resources indicated below or teachers who would like to comment.

Please note this page will be updated regularly. There is no commitment to create these resources, and they are presented in no particular order. We look forward to an open discussion!
