Ticketed & Drop-In Zoom Events

Welcome to AccessArt’s ongoing programme of creative zoom events!

AccessArt runs an ongoing programme of Zoom CPD to help support educators develop their understanding of the visual arts. 

This Autumn Term 2024, we’re excited to create a Zoom CPD offer which celebrates all the AccessArt community, making sure everyone feels included, regardless of the educational setting you work in. We welcome classroom teachers, home educators, artist educators, facilitators in care homes and hospitals, and a whole wealth of other educators to our website and CPD programme. Join our supportive network as we inspire and enable visual arts education for learners in all settings.

With the exception of the collaborative CPD, most of our zoom sessions will be recorded and made available to AccessArt members. Find past recordings here. Scroll down for more info about events.

You can also buy recordings of some past event here.
