The programme is funded by Dublin West Education Centre under the Arts in Education Charter as a means for children to explore creativity in Arts Education.
“A purposeful arts education at primary level is life-enhancing and is invaluable in stimulating creative thinking and in promoting capability and adaptability.” Arts in Education Charter. Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht January 2013.
The programme also aims to develop the children’s aesthetic language literacy skills and critical thinking skills.
Carla will be working in 3rd class for the duration of the residency. We expect plenty of rich learning experiences to occur for the children over the next few months.
