Focus On Workshops
After a facilitated exploration of exhibitions in our Galleries, featured artists will lead pupils through workshops introducing the principles of their artform. Pupils then get to try out their new techniques themselves and bring their new skills back to the classroom and homes.
Artist in the Classroom
This programme provides a range of high-quality arts experiences for primary school pupils and teachers in their own classroom, working with Draíocht’s professional artists. Schools can choose from a range of specially selected and purposefully created school workshops each season. Past workshops have included: ‘Music & Singing in Your Classroom with Donal Kearney’; ‘Print in Your Classroom with Deirdre O’Reilly’ and ‘Drama in Your Classroom with Eimear Morrissey’.
Primary School Tours
Bring your class for a full tour of our building; including Draíocht’s Galleries, Theatres and Backstage areas. Pupils are encouraged to voice their own opinions about the artists and their work in our galleries and ask questions about theatre productions and staging, on this fun 50-minute free tour (max 30 pupils with accompanying teacher).
Room 13 Enquiry
Developed by Fingal Arts Office, Room 13 Enquiry is a programme that sees artists share an art studio space with children in two primary schools in Fingal, and the children visit exhibitions and places of cultural interest throughout the academic year. A partnership with Draíocht has resulted in some wonderful opportunities for the children and artists each year. You can read more here: http://room13inquiry.ie/
CPD Programme for Primary School Teachers
Draíocht in Collaboration with Fingal Arts Office supports Primary School Teachers through its Continuous Professional Development initiatives.
Draíocht also presents a curated programme of film and live theatre events for Primary School children, often with accompanying workshops. We also welcome our local schools to Draíocht’s stage for their school productions.
