Welcome to AccessArt: Painting

Scratching into wet paint.

By facilitating an exploration of different painting media, learners understand through experience how the medium acts for them. We can then help all learners explore line, colour, shape, mark making and composition. Alongside this material exploration, learners build understanding of the intention behind the painterly marks they make. 

Build understanding of painting as an activity and as an outcome, and develop skills to help facilitate a creative and inclusive exploration of painting in others.
