'If I had an artist for a day...' 2009

If I Had An Artist For A Day The Arts Service of Kildare County Council is delighted to announce the 2009 roll out of the subsidised Arts in Education initiative ‘If I had an Artist for a Day ….’ 

This innovative programme for primary schools in Kildare uses digital tools such as photography, projection and film but also traditional visual art materials, musical instruments and drama.

The programme aims are to actively involve children in creatively investigating their situations and surroundings. All workshops are designed and delivered by ‘working artists’, providing an opportunity for children to meet with professional practitioners.

But it’s not all work! We want children to have fun, to enjoy working as part of a team, while learning new skills through engaging, challenging and entertaining arts experiences. Workshops are process led - there is making and doing as well as listening and viewing!
