This programme aims to provide a range of high quality arts experiences for primary school pupils and teachers in their own classroom, working with Draíocht’s professional artists. Your school can choose from the range of specially selected and purposefully created school workshops below. This Season, pupils will have the opportunity to perform, print and sing. Workshops are tailored to your class’s age and abilities.

Music And Singing In Your Classroom
Age Range: Adaptable To All Age Ranges
Duration: 3 Class Groups get 60 min Workshop Each
Artist: Dónal Kearney
This music and singing workshop introduces pupils to the potential of making music with their own voice. The workshop focuses on building listening skills, encouraging creative play, and creating music using the voice and the instruments available in each school. Based on years of research in music education and practical choral training, Dónal and his team at Fingal Academy of Music believe in the power and benefits of music engagement.

Print In Your Classroom
Age Range: 3rd-6th Class
Duration: 2 Class Groups get a 2hr Workshop Each
Artist: Deirdre O’Reilly
Deirdre will introduce your pupils to a number of different print making techniques, before they work together to plan, create and produce a series of limited edition original prints. Print making allows pupils to explore the endless possibilities of shape and colour, line and pattern and offers opportunities to create individual and collaborative works of art. All materials will be provided. A must-do cross curricular creative workshop for your class.

Drama In Your Classroom

Duration: Junior/Senior Inf: 4 Class Groups get 45 min Workshop Each / 1st Class Upwards: 2 Class Groups get 1.5hr Workshop Each

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!

New Impressions
Neil Dunne, Margot Galvin, Fiona Kelly, Aoife Scott

Ground Floor Gallery
Works from the Graphic Studio
Members from Fingal

First Floor Gallery

MAKing Art: PRINTing is the third in a series of exhibitions aimed at children and young people, which explores a particular visual art discipline, its materials, processes and varied manifestations. Printmaking is the focus of this third exhibition. It celebrates different techniques, styles and approaches to the use of print, to the act of printmaking and to the print as a finished artwork.

It includes two exhibitions: New Impressions (Ground Floor Gallery) explores how traditional printmaking techniques have been re-imagined and re-worked and invites us to consider: what makes a print a print? Common conceptions of printmaking are expanded, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, from mass-produced to unique, from paper to mixed and digital media. The exhibition features artists whose work, though rooted in or referencing print, expands the boundaries of that medium. New Impressions includes artists Neil Dunne, Margot Galvin, Fiona Kelly and Aoife Scott.

Works from the Graphic Studio (First Floor Gallery) is an exhibition which marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Graphic Studio and features members from Fingal who work across a range of process including etching, woodcut/lino, screen print and lithography. Artists include: Susan Early, Mary Grey, Julie Ann Haines, Michele Hetherington, Ernada Husic, Siobhan Hyde, Desmond Kenny, Michael Killen, Jennifer Lane, Pamela Leonard, Ned McLoughlin, Sorca O'Farrell and Una Sealy. The exhibition will also feature work by master printmakers, Niamh Flanagan and Robert Russell.

MAKing Art PRINTing will be accompanied by a programme of engagement for children and young people facilitated by participating artists and Draíocht’s Artist team.
