Objectives of our Children's Programme
Our curriculum consists of experimenting with six strands. Each
strand represents a medium for developing the child's expressive
abilities. These strands are drawing, paint and colour, print, clay, 3D work, jewelry making and textiles.
As well as being great fun our classes emphasizes three starting points for the child's art activities:
- the child's own experience
- the child's imagination
- the child's observations
Students will be encouraged to engage with the current works in the gallery at Galway Arts Centre. Through group conversations the child
will develop sensitivity to visual elements, and will begin to use
these elements purposefully in his/her own art-making. The process of
making art will be highlighted as being as valuable as the final
Child protection procedures are in
place and we follow the Arts Council of Ireland's
best practice for photographing children.
