The Art Hub runs on a weekly basis. We provide a fun introduction to a wide range of arts practices for our junior and senior cycles. We aim to provide a safe fun atmosphere where we encourage children to explore their creative talents complementing the school's curriculum. Many of our arts programmes also link with the other Hubs with students interested in exploring the potential of multimedia to express their artistic goals. Art Hub is also part of the STEAM project curriculum in development at the Hub.
Junior Art is run in conjunction with the Music hub This program is directed at 5 to 8 year olds. The program aims to provide an fun and creative introduction to the visual arts.
With the junior cycle we follow closely with the school's curriculum with the freedom to focus on areas which engage the children to build exciting and fun projects and tailoring the program to the needs of individual.
Our Senior Art program caters to 8 to 12 years olds whom usual follow from our junior cycle or (or just join up) as with the junior group we complement the school's art curriculum.
With the senior classes they are more self directed which means we can work on more independently on projects and themes.
