This programme aims to provide a range of high quality arts experiences for pupils and teachers in your own classroom, using Draíocht’s professional artists, at Primary level. Your school can choose from the range of specially selected and purposefully created school workshops below.

Clay In Your Classroom

Slap it, bang it, thump it, texture it! Create three dimensional animals and clay models with Ceramic Artist Deirdre O'Reilly. This in-depth ceramic workshop will concentrate on using 3-dimensional clay shapes as a starting point for model making.

The workshop will explore different ways of engaging the imagination, of thinking creatively, seeing, listening, new ways of communicating and expression, as well as building confidence. Pupils will work together towards a common goal of creating a short improvised performance piece, giving them the opportunity to experience the creation of something from nothing!

Dance In Your Classroom
