Artist in the Classroom Initiative:

(Category: STEAM Initiatives)
This initiative is an exciting opportunity for students to become acquainted with an artist and to be exposed to the artistic process in action.  Through this initiative, a visiting artist has the opportunity to model the artistic process and demonstrate the elements of this process; engaging with critical thinking skills, making informed decisions, reflecting, analysing and implementing ideas. This can be a valuable learning opportunity for students and has the potential to bring creativity to life, as well as demonstrating the realistic process of working through an art project. This initiative may incorporate the Junior Cycle key skills of “Working With Others”, “Being Creative” or  “Managing Information and Thinking.”
