A unique summer course that offers teachers the opportunity to explore the nature and educational value of partnerships between teachers and artists in supporting arts education in schools

This Course potentially improves literacy, numeracy & well-being in all schools including DEIS. It will be offered across the Education Centre Network (21 centres) in 2018

If this idea excites you then this course is definitely for you.

Many schools across the country are engaged in projects with artists, ranging from one-off artist visits to longer term projects, and in a variety of art forms.  If you are currently engaged in such a project or are planning one for the coming year, then this course will be of interest to you.

This course looks at the ways in which working with an artist in school can be enhanced in order to provide meaningful experiences for children and a lasting impact on school practice.

Particular emphasis will be on the role of the teacher and artist, their unique contributions to projects and the significant benefits that can accrue from a dynamic teacher/artist relationship in the planning and implementation of projects. Placing the teacher/artist project within the overall Arts Curriculum in schools and exploration of practical issues will be central.

The Course draws on research in the field and looks at practical teacher/artist projects and partnerships that have been undertaken in schools recently. Various art forms will be explored and participants will have opportunities to explore their own creativity throughout the week.

Course tutors are teachers and artists who have been involved in such projects and participants on the course will include both teachers and local artists.

If you are looking to improve your understanding of arts education, to improve Arts Curriculum integration in your classroom, to work with a Partner in the field of 'The Arts' , to engage with a professional artist as a way of improving your own arts teaching skills?   Would you welcome the input and insight of a practising artist while teaching the children in your care?
