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.

Workshops are tailored to your class’s age and abilities and will work with two separate classes each day.

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.

Divorced dad Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) has custody of his son Charlie (Eric Lloyd) on Christmas Eve. After he accidentally causes the death of a man in a Santa suit, they are magically transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa's place before the next Christmas arrives.
