The Clare Arts Office Artists in Schools Programme is designed to create opportunities for artists and schools to work together over a specific duration of time. We support and fund projects that are innovative, unique and that foster creativity; skills development and an introduction to the language used in art making. We also encourage projects that introduce children to experience the cross disciplinary nature of the arts, projects which connect ideas and art making to other subjects e.g. history, science, the environment, local, national and global cultures and traditions.

The Artists Residency programme currently has two strands: Arts Space and Arts Days. The scheme is open to artists from any artistic discipline including visual arts and crafts, music, dance, drama, literature, film, architecture, photography, and new media.

2018/19 flagship projects include a year-long artist residency with artist Shona MacGillivray and St Anne’s Special School and a Spoken Word Poetry Project with TY students.

The Artists in Schools Programme also supports and develops.

  • Per Cent for Art commissioning in schools
  • Professional Development Training and Child Protection for Artists working with children.
