Workshops for Schools

Each year, Carclew offers a program of accessible, dynamic arts workshops for pre-schools and schools. Carclew Arts and Education staff work closely with professional teaching artists and educators to align workshops with the Arts and broader curriculum while facilitating positive learning outcomes for students. The workshops also provide hands-on professional learning opportunities for teachers.

Artists are required to demonstrate an understanding, as well as expertise, in working with groups of children and young people. With this in mind, Carclew has always offered opportunities to emerging artists to work alongside experienced artists. This structure not only provides 'on the floor' support for the lead artists, but provides hands-on experience and mentoring for young artists with an interest in working on other Carclew Arts and Education projects such as Creative Education Partnerships, Artists in Schools and Cargo.

 Arts workshops for schools are made accessible and affordable through giving priority to disadvantaged schools as well as transporting students to the workshop venue, at no cost where funding allows.
