Bringing Live Arts to Students and Teachers (BLAST)

is a professional Arts in Education residency initiative whereby schools and artists enhance the delivery of arts education for children in our schools.  

The aim of the scheme is to give pupils in schools all over the country the opportunity to work with a professional artist on unique projects to be originated and planned between the artist, the teacher and the school under the coordination of the Education Support Centres Ireland. This initiative supports children and young people for the future, where skills like the ability to connect and collaborate with others, engage in creative and critical thinking and practice inclusivity at every level will be paramount to peace, stability, sustainable economic growth and equality.

Our artist in residency was Liadain Butler who worked with the pupils in 3rd to 6th class.  Liadain and the pupils painted the mural seen in the photograph depicting every day words and what the words mean to the pupils.
