AccessArt Launches its New Primary Art Curriculum!
“We wanted to create an art curriculum which would help primary schools deliver a really exciting, rich and forward thinking visual arts education, whilst at the same time giving non-specialist and often inexperienced teachers the support they need to feel confident and happy teaching art.”
We’re really proud of our new curriculum and we hope you like it too. Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing some of its key features, but here’s a taster of why we think this art curriculum is really special.
We hope you enjoy exploring. Thank you to the Team for months of hard work and to the many experts who gave advice during its formation.
Best wishes, Paula Briggs, Creative Director, AccessArt

We are excited to be able to share with you our new curriculum, consisting of 36 pathways for Years 1 to 6, designed to inspire and enable high quality visual arts teaching and learning in primary schools.
Designed around the idea that art is far more than a series of technical skills, our holistic curriculum nurtures creative thinking skills and helps ensure your pupils learn through art, as well as about art.
