Teacher & Artist partnership

A unique summer course that offers teachers the opportunity to explore the nature and educational value of partnerships between teachers and artists in supporting arts education in school communities

This Course potentially improves literacy, numeracy & well-being in all schools including DEIS. It will be offered across the Education Centre Network (21 Centres) in 2019 supported by the Department of Education & Skills & Creative Ireland Fund.

If this idea excites you then this course is definitely for you!

Many schools across the country are engaged in projects with artists, ranging from one-off artist visits to longer term projects, and in a variety of art forms. If you are currently engaged in such a project or are planning one for the coming year, then this course will be of interest to you.

This course looks at the ways in which working with an artist in school can be enhanced in order to provide meaningful experiences for children and a lasting impact on school practice. Particular emphasis will be on the role of the teacher and artist, their unique contributions to projects and the significant benefits that can accrue from a dynamic teacher/artist relationship in the planning and implementation of projects.

Placing the teacher/artist project within the overall Arts Curriculum in schools and exploration of practical issues will be central.

The Course draws on research in the field and looks at practical teacher/artist projects and partnerships that have been undertaken in schools recently. Various art forms will be explored and participants will have opportunities to explore their own creativity throughout the week.

Course tutors are teachers and artists who have been involved in such projects and participants on the course will include both teachers and local artists. If you are looking to improve your understanding of arts education, to improve Arts Curriculum integration in your classroom, to work with a Partner in the field of 'The Arts’, to engage with a professional artist as a way of improving your own arts teaching skills then this course is for YOU!

Schools Principals might consider this course in the context of the Government’s Creative Ireland Programme - featuring “Enabling the Creative Potential of Every Child” in Pillar 1 (creative. ireland.ie) and the overall development of arts education in your school community. It may be useful to consider attendance, which includes more than one teacher or even whole school participation.

Schools, which were selected under the Creative Schools (Arts Council) or the Creative Clusters initiative under the Schools Excellence Fund (SEF) will benefit from participation also. Artists in various disciplines will train alongside teachers on this Course being offered throughout the education Centre network nationally.
The Teacher/Artist Partnership Residency programme 2019 – 2020 will be available to eight participating schools in all 21 full-time Education Centres. Only schools whose teachers participated in the summer course 2019 will be eligible for a residency.

The Summer Course reports and the Residency programme 2018-2019 demonstrates positive outcomes and the exciting potential of this CPD model for teachers, artists and schools.

“An opportunity to train with an artist and not to be missed!”
