Laois Summer Arts Programme 2013
Published: 22nd February 2013
Planning is underway for the Laois Summer Arts Programme 2013. The programme will include a mix of activities including; Arts & Crafts, Creative Writing, Dance and Music. Artists and tutors are now invited to submit proposals for summer 2013.
The aim of the programme is to inspire imagination and self-expression with a world of hands-on art activities. Through painting, sculpture, dance, drawing, collage, dramatic play and much more, workshops encourage confidence and support artistic potential. The programme runs in the month of July and workshops are 2 hrs long and run from Monday to Friday. Depending on demand a workshop for the younger age range runs in the morning from 11-1 and for an older age range in the afternoon from 2-4 in the same venue. Workshops normally cater for up to 20 but may vary according to the type of art activity. Artists/Tutors must have Garda Vetting, have relevant references and have experience of working with children and young people. A clear costing of a proposal is required but in the case of Art Classes the Arts Office have a supply of general art materials available– ie: scissors, paint brushes, paints, glues, etc. Additional materials required must be listed and priced. The Deadline for receipt of project proposals is Tuesday 2nd April 2013.
