AccessArt are pleased to welcome James Nairne as one of our 40 Artist Educator Project artists. This exemplar project uses sketchbook drawing and photographs as the source for developing painting. There is an emphasis on thinking about how the properties of paint can be exploited through handling and mark-making.

This project was shared with AccessArt as part of the 40 Artist Educator Project, funded by Arts Council England, aiming to highlight and celebrate artist-led teaching and facilitation.
