Teacher/Artist Partnership as a CPD Model to Support and Enhance Arts
This unique course offers teachers the opportunity to explore the value of partnerships between teachers and artists in supporting arts education. If you are looking to improve your understanding of arts education, to improve Arts Curriculum integration in your classroom and to engage with a professional artist as a way of improving your own arts teaching skills, this is the course for you! It 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.
Many schools across the country are engaged in projects with artists, in a variety of art forms, ranging from one-off artist visits to longer term projects. 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 related practical issues will be central to the course.
This 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.
Please Note: This course will take place in Gaelscoil Osrai, Loughboy, Kilkenny.
