During 2021 AccessArt will be pulling together teams of experienced practitioners to help us create content for the AccessArt website. The practitioners will come from many backgrounds/sectors: teachers, lecturers, facilitators, creative practitioners and subject specialists, including representatives of SEND and lifelong learners, from the UK and overseas.
The practitioners will build on AccessArt’s in-house skills and expertise, and work with us remotely to help advise/create content around five main areas of development highlighted for 2021:
The Drawing Journey – Creating pathways through drawing to help schools deliver exciting and diverse drawing approaches which underpin visual arts and creativity.
The Sketchbook Journey – Pathways to help schools understand and explore what sketchbooks can offer young learners and how they might be used to help pupils reach their creative potential.
The Making Journey – Pathways to ensure we provide opportunities for learners to develop their dexterity and material transformation skills.
The Creative Journey – Resources to help teachers and pupils better understand what it is to “be creative”, enabling them to trust and own the creative process.
Creative Pedagogy and Pathways– Resources which explore transferable practice between sectors, inspired by a virtual group.
It is important to our organisation that our contributors are recognised for all that they do and feel like they have a stake in our work – we are all working to support the same communities and all benefit from our combined shared expertise.
