BLAST ( Bringing living arts to students &Teachers)
The Department of Education has developed a new innovative Arts-in-Education BLAST Residency Programme .
St Oliver’s has been one of the successful schools to be granted an artist in Residence in the New Year ahead.
The aim of this scheme is to give pupils the opportunity to work with a professional artist on a unique project which will be originated and planned between the artist, teachers and the school,
The pupils will develop the skills and ability to connect and collaborate with others, engage in creative and critical thinking and practice inclusivity at every level.
We are very excited to be involved and are looking forward to working with well known artist Tricia O Connor.
We will share our work over the coming months on the school website gallery.
