ACHF Arts Education
Barriers will be identified and adaptations made to support arts learners to develop and expand artistic skills and self-expression. Individual barriers will be identified and adaptations suggested by artists and Epic staff. Adaptations which prove to be successful will be integrated into future lessons and will be documented. 2: Learners will develop holistically, as art becomes a vehicle for expanded emotional/social wellbeing, physical and artistic/cognitive functioning. Evaluation is through observations by artists and staff identifying emotional/social, physical and artistic/cognitive functioning. Regular meetings will review individual mastery and participation.
