Artist in Schools Scheme 2020/2021

Artists in Schools Residencies
Arts Office Artists in Schools Programme is designed to create opportunities for artists and schools to work together over a specific duration of time. We favour projects that are innovative, unique and that foster creativity, skills development and an introduction to the language used in art making. We also encourage projects that introduce children to experience the cross disciplinary nature of the arts, projects which connect ideas and art making to other subjects e.g. history, science, the environment, local, national and global cultures and traditions. Projects can include curated talks and tours.
The Artists in Schools Residency is a vibrant arts and education programme funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
Artists in Schools Residencies - Award amount: €1,200
