Training is provided through the network in order for artists to shape their work with the needs of schools in mind. We have an open submission policy for artists, curators and potential partners. We will consider all proposals and their fit with our curatorial ethos, its potential to align with our audience development objectives and artistic quality. We work in partnership to develop projects by providing assistance with fundraising, research and development and curatorial support and we will build long-term relationships with artists working with them in varied capacities over a period of time. New teachers as well as established practitioners can benefit from taking part, with the aim of the programme being to motivate educators to consider dynamic new practices and approaches to learning and teaching. The toolkit offers a framework that supports teachers to develop their own creativity and reflective practice, finding new ways of stimulating their learners’ imaginations through session plans that engage and inspire new perspectives on curriculum themes, topics or subjects.

That for many schools, an ongoing exploration of materials will provide an accessible and effective starting point. This exploration will help the children grow in confidence and understanding and promote self-directed learning. Manipulating materials helps children explore processes, and these in turn can be applied to concepts. Many of the resources in the subject areas centre around an exploration of materials and processes. The All-Wales Arts and Education Offer provides opportunities for schools to work with artists and cultural organisations. This module provides a grounding in arts and transcultural communication, using artistic practices and discursive frameworks to highlight and examine issues related to communication.

  • Each class and individuals within the class will naturally explore at his or her own level.
  • Whilst we appreciate many schools approach art in a project or theme-based manner, our experience is that when art is taught as a distinct subject in a skills-based manner there is clearer progression and the teaching and learning is more rigorous.

Exposure to the arts can unlock potential in young people, helping them to develop skills in communication, collaboration, creativity and problem solving. In addition to the enjoyment and enrichment the arts bring, arts education can increase young people’s engagement in school and learning, and support key educational outcomes. For many young people, particularly those experiencing the most disadvantage, the only opportunity to gain access to arts education is at school.

The main consideration when choosing your topic is that it must be relevant to your programme and you should consider the relevance of this topic to your future academic or professional development.
