Artist in Schools Scheme
Artist in Schools Scheme
The aim of the scheme is to provide pupils with a quality experience of working with
a professional artist. Selection of the schools to participate will be made on the basis
of the proposals submitted. The Arts Officer reserves the right to convene a panel to
assess the applications.
Applications will be assessed on merit. Proposals which seek to carry out work which
should be carried out normally under the primary school curriculum will not be
considered. Proposals should consider the optimum number of children participating
in the project, not necessarily the largest number of children.
Only professional artists already registered with the Arts Office for participation in
the scheme will be considered. All registered artists are listed on
Application forms must be jointly filled out by the school and their chosen artist.
The closing date for completed application forms and proposals is 4.30 pm on
Friday, January 16th, 2009. Late applications will not be considered.
Selected schools will be advised in writing of approval for the residency prior to
Friday, January 30th, 2009.
If successful participating schools are required to draw up an agreement with their
chosen artist before the residency begins and to send a copy of same to the Arts
Office. This agreement should be cognisant of the Artist~Schools Guidelines devised
by the Arts Council and the Department of Education.
Each participating school must complete an evaluation form on completion of the
residency and this must be submitted to the Arts Office by June 30th, 2009.
This scheme is supported by Clare County Council and the Arts Council of Ireland
