Teacher Summer Course: A Visual Arts Approach 17 Aug - 21 Aug 2015
The Ark, Monaghan Education Centre & Cavan Arts Office presents a highly creative summer course for primary school teachers focusing on a Visual Arts approach to exploring narrative, literacy & other subjects.
This is a five day Department of Education and Skills and EPV-approved summer course for teachers.
The aim of the course is to enable participants to start the new school year with an enhanced tool box of skills and knowledge, in order to effectively deliver the visual arts in the classroom. Participants will be engaged ‘hands-on’ throughout this course so learning will be through doing. Working in teams and individually, you will cover a range of visual art curriculum strands including drawing, painting, print, 3D construction, fabric and fibre. A strong emphasis will be on building skills and confidence. The group will also explore how visual art can be used to engage with aspects of the English, SPHE, History, Maths curriculum, as well as to promote visual literacy approaches. School self-evaluation exercises will be incorporated as an integral part of the course. This course will appeal to teachers of all levels of experience and will be facilitated by the visual arts and education specialist and founder of Art to Heart, Jole Bortoli.
This is a continuing professional development opportunity not to be missed! This course was a huge success at The Ark last year and we are delighted to be running it again in Co. Cavan this August.from 17th to 21st August.
