Workshop and booking details for the 2010 'If I had an Artist for a day...' programme

Arts education enables a child to express ideas, feelings and experiences in language, gesture and movement. The aims of this programme are to support child-led, child-focused learning while providing tangible expression for a range of experiences and outcomes.

This innovative programme for primary schools in Kildare uses digital tools such as photography, projection and film but also traditional visual art materials, musical instruments and drama.

Arts facilitators recognise and appreciate the concept of multiple intelligences and their role in creating pathways to learning that involve reflection, imagination and sensitivity. This is an opportunity for engaging the curriculum in an active learning way.

The programme’s aims are to actively involve children in creatively investigating their situations and surroundings. All workshops are designed and delivered by ‘working artists’, providing an opportunity for children to meet with professional practitioners.
