Whilst the full impact of the current pandemic is unclear, we are in no doubt about the immediate challenges that many of the organisations and people we fund, and the individuals and communities they support, are facing. All full-time MAAL students will be allocated an individual studio space at 288 NX Road for the duration of their study. We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September. You’ll be asked to upload/include up to 10 images of your practice/art work as part of your application. The images can be of present and/or past personal art work/performance/installation etc.

  • The only Arts Education MA in the UK based in a School of Art, we provide a unique platform for the art educator….
  • I was born in the Isle of Man and I am very proud of my Manx heritage and the inspired music in schools and at home which led me to become a member of folk groups, choirs and orchestras, as well as numerous stage performances.
  • The purpose of the module is to enable you to undertake a sustained, in-depth and theoretically informed research project exploring an area that is of personal interest to you.
  • Training is provided through the network in order for artists to shape their work with the needs of schools in mind.

The course is based at Birmingham School of Art , a fine example of Venetian Gothic architecture and an impressive purpose built Grade I listed art school. We have made a five-year commitment to 11 organisations in the latest round of the Backbone Fund. The Fund is unrestricted and aims to underpin leading organisations that contribute to the overall health of the sectors we support.

I Love Art

It is just you, sitting there and expressing yourself, and sometimes we listen to music, which is helpful because you get new ideas. Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. Research reports evidencing the value and impact of creativity in the learning of young people. The Art of Learning has found to help with children’s literacy and communication skills; speaking out and expressing themselves with clarity and with confidence.

The initiative was found to have a strong, positive effect on the writing outcomes of low attaining pupils. We believe that creativity matters, and we want to see the creative skills of learners developed across the school curriculum. If English isn’t your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5 with a 6.5 in writing and no element lower than 6.0 to study this programme.

Creative & Performing Arts

Edsential specialises in developing and running cultural projects that involve creative and performing artists and educators working with pupils to produce high quality pieces of work. Esdential provide co-created, progressive, quality creative and cultural experiences for schools, families and communities, enabling our children and young people to communicate what they see, feel and think and develop new talents, confidence and aspiration. Art may not be your favourite subject, but studying the arts alongside other subjects significantly boosts student achievement. Schools that integrate arts into their curriculum show improved student performance in Maths, English, critical thinking and verbal skills. Although the references are largely about the impact of arts education in general, the methodologies may be of interest to artists and teachers who are interested in exploring the impact of the arts in relation to literacy and numeracy.

It is aimed at initiating and extending practical, critical and contextual understanding of contemporary art practices and how these can be used to explore social and cultural issues. You will engage with contemporary theory in critical and cultural studies such as semiotics, hermeneutics, post-structuralism and psychoanalysis. We showcase six projects annually in our gallery spaces at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning and also work in partnership with other organisations to deliver touring exhibitions and off site projects.
