If I had an Artist for a Day...

Below you will find details for the current "If I had an Artist for a Day..." programme.

Kildare County Council Arts Service is delighted to announce the 2014 roll out of its subsidised Arts in Education primary school programme 'If I had an Artist for a Day ..'

AFAD 2014 

The programme's aims are to provide quality arts experiences for artist, teacher and children alike. The workshops are interactive in nature and the programme has something to offer every school regardless of physical space or previous experience.

Schools can choose from a range of one day workshops across art forms. Children and teachers will be creatively inspired and busily engaged
using digital tools and technologies as well as traditional visual art materials, musical instruments and drama.

The calibre, range and quality of the workshops included are superb. Children will have the opportunity to experience a range of innovative workshops including plaster casting, ceramic sculpture, stop animation film, circus skills, puppet making, ukulele playing, or just make, tell or share a story all tailored to age abilities!

Schools must register their choice in order of preference on the official booking form.  The scheme is offered on a first come first served basis therefore registration does not guarantee a booking

Book early to avoid disappointment.
