Galway Arts Centre is committed to providing quality arts experiences for schools and teachers. Our Visual Arts in Education Programme connects Primary and Secondary School pupils directly to the arts through:
- Exhibitions of artworks by national and international artists
- Guided tours of the galleries
- Artist-led talks
- Hands-on workshops
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book a free guided tour for your class or group.
Galway Arts Centre regularly develops programmes aimed specifically for young people.
Galway Arts Centre’s Gallery tours for primary school groups are carried out in a conversational format where the themes and ideas behind the work encourage creative thinking while empowering the young people to develop their creative vocabulary. Gallery visits must be organised in advance to provide a high quality, tailor-made experience for each group.
We regularly partner with local organisations on gallery visits and workshops such as TULCA Festival of Visual Art, Galway City and County Libraries and Galway City Museum and Baboró International Arts Festival for Children.
Gallery visits for post-primary groups may feature higher-level discussions and engagement, or tours catered to Leaving Cert art history questions.
These visits are designed around each individual group, taking into account what stage of learning the students are and what is important and is of interest to them at that time.
To book a tour for a post-primary group, contact email@example.com.
Galway Arts Centre offers bespoke tours ranging from very casual to highly informative.
In the past, we have offered:
- Tours for groups of artists and teachers on applying Creative Thinking Strategies
- Descriptive tours for visually impared people
- Informative tours for men in the Galway Direct Provision Centre
