DrawAble: Envisioning Stories

Film, literature, theatre, music and poetry can all provide children with ways through which they can make sense of the world around them.

By combining drawing with the artforms above, we provide children with a tool which can help them reinterpret art made by other people, accessing and understanding their own emotions.

The resources in this section will inspire children to reinterpret existing stories so that they can make them their own, and share with others. Teachers can use these resources to connect art to other subject areas, including literacy, history, geography, science, drama and music.

You might also like to visit our Let Me Inspire You section to hear how artists use drawing in their work, and visit the Building Your Story section to find more activities which will inspire children to use materials and techniques as a way of unearthing their own stories.

All DrawAble resources have been created for use at home or school during lockdown or as part of a blended learning offering.
