CPD / Primary School Teachers / The Artful Classroom
Fingal County Council & Superprojects present:
The Artful Classroom - A CPD programme for primary school teachers - Accredited by Drumcondra Education Centre
Dates: July 2nd – 6th 2018
Locations: Bracken Educate Together National School & The Irish Museum of Modern Art
This CPD programme The Artful Classroom facilitates primary school teachers to enrich their work in the classroom by exploring contemporary art and architecture, as fascinating resources ripe for use as inspiration and departure points for creative enquiry. Together, the group will explore the national and international practices of artists and architects, through imagery and discussion, and playfully consider how they can be applied to the primary school classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to explore the work of exciting contemporary artists directly through a day at The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
The focus will be on process and creative thinking, rather than learning to produce fixed outcomes. Facilitated by Aideen Barry, Aoife Banim, Anne Bradley, Eileen Keane and Catriona Leahy, the course draws on the expertise of both teachers (with experience of art/architecture) and artists (with experience of education). Each day will be led by a different course facilitator who will share their experience of working creatively with children and demonstrate how they translate their own creative/artistic interests into classroom practice in visual art, and other areas across the curriculum. Participants will creatively explore these practices daily, through a diverse range of hands-on activities.
Please find attached full programme details. This course is accredited by Drumcondra Education Centre and carries an entitlement of extra personal vacation (EPV) days.
We look forward to seeing you there.
