Summer Course - 19LC 07 016 Teacher/Artist Partnership

A unique summer course that offers teachers the opportunity to explore the
nature and educational value of partnerships between teachers and artists in
supporting arts education in schools
Many schools across the country are engaged in projects with artists, ranging from one-off artist visits to
longer term projects, and in a variety of art forms. If you are currently engaged in such a project or are
planning one for the coming year, then this course will be of interest to you. This course looks at the ways
in which working with an artist in school can be enhanced in order to provide meaningful experiences for
children and a lasting impact on school practice. Particular emphasis will be on the role of the teacher
and artist, their unique contributions to projects and the significant benefits that can accrue from a
dynamic teacher/artist relationship in the planning and implementation of projects. Placing the
teacher/artist project within the overall Arts Curriculum in schools and exploration of practical issues will
be central.
The Course draws on research in the field and looks at practical teacher/artist projects and partnerships
that have been undertaken in schools recently. Various art forms will be explored and participants will
have opportunities to explore their own creativity throughout the week.
Course tutors are teachers and artists who have been involved in such projects and participants on the
course will include both teachers and local artists. If you are looking to improve your understanding of
arts education, to improve Arts Curriculum integration in your classroom, to work with a Partner in the
field of 'The Arts' , to engage with a professional artist as a way of improving your own arts teaching skills
then this course is for YOU!
