Art is a tool to empower in the classroom. It is also about process of making things, free experimentation, exploring materials and self-directed discovery. Art can help children and young people to think through ideas in an expanded way and to bring the whole body into their learning. It teaches us all to be inquisitive, persistent, imaginative, disciplined and collaborative.

Primary School Tours

Our learning team of artists will bring your class on a tour through this season’s exhibitions. After the tour they will lead an art activity. These workshops are suitable for primary school groups from 1st to 6th class.

Leaving Certificate Tours

These visits specifically address the Leaving Cert Gallery Appreciation Question and are an excellent addition to the new Leaving Cert video resources. Artists can answer student questions and go in depth into an area of contemporary art you wish to explore in more detail (eg. the role of the curator/ digital resources in galleries or an aspect of the gallery appreciation question of your choice).
