Designed to help schools deliver an inspiring and appropriate curriculum for pupils working at home or school, AccessArt DrawAble connects drawing, narrative and visual literacy to provide pupils with a creative bridge to help them navigate from lockdown towards the new normal.

Why DrawAble?

AccessArt DrawAble is being developed in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, to provide schools with accessible and high quality resources designed with the following requirements in mind:

  • The resources can be delivered directly to pupils working from home, or accessed in school, so that all pupils can enjoy a comparative experience.

  • The resources provide everything a teacher or parent needs to encourage holistic, high quality creative learning, at an inclusive and gentle pace.

  • The activities are sensitively devised and appropriate for children re-emerging into school life, or not yet re-emerging into school life, with all the physical and emotional load which these children may carry.

  • The activities are safe activities for bubbles – for example, they do not promote sharing of materials, or encourage queuing around sinks for water etc.

  • The final results can be shared digitally amongst the communities taking part, and via the AccessArt website, to bring communities together and create a shared experience. 

  • The resources will provide opportunities for teachers to link a number of areas of the curriculum including art, literacy, history, geography and PSHE, and at the same time to think carefully about what pupils might need in terms of a recovery based curriculum which supports wellbeing. 

  • All resources will be available free of charge from the AccessArt website. 

Meet the DrawAble Team!

Thanks so much to all the artists and educators who have stepped up to help us create the DrawAble resources. We really appreciate your vision, passion and dedication to help us create such high quality resources at such a speed, so that we can help schools returning to education in September 2020. 
The DrawAble project is proof that brave, creative, collaborative thinking can take us a long way into helping re-see a better future for all. Thank you, creative people, everywhere!
