Second Level Schools
The second level schools programme aims to provide teachers and students with opportunities to engage with the arts across the curricula, through gallery tours, film screenings, performances and workshops.
Gallery tours are available for second level groups throughout the year. Gallery tours at Second Level can be of benefit to;
- Art students; especially those at Leaving Certificate level who must answer questions on visiting a gallery in their exam. All groups can benefit from exposure to contemporary art practice, to broaden their understanding of what art can be, to inspire their own creativity, and to invite their own visual or written response to the work.
- English students; exhibitions can be used as inspiration for creative writing, or for critical review. Successful responses can be submitted to West Cork Arts Centre for online publication.
- TY students; as part of encouraging a wider appreciation of culture and exploring new experiences.
Tours cost €2 per student and can be tailored to suit your students age, abilities and requirements. Booking is essential.
