Trip to an Art Gallery

(Category: STEAM Initiatives)
This initiative offers an opportunity for students to visit an art gallery. Through this visit, visual culture can be brought to life for the students. Exposure to art outside the classroom should broaden the horizons of students and allow them to harness their critical thinking skills through the exploration and analysis of techniques, themes and media used.  This valuable learning experience may also provide a springboard for their own creativity, experimentation and artistic expression. Teachers may also consider using this creative initiative to engage with a flipped-classroom, student-centred approach to learning. Schools may wish to engage with their local art gallery for this initiative. This initiative may incorporate the Junior Cycle key skills of “Working with Others” or “Being Creative.”.
