Primary School Gallery Tours using VTS

Tuesdays – Fridays, various times available, free, booking essential, duration: 60mins

Look, listen and respond to artworks by Sinéad Mhaonaigh in her current exhibition ‘Deep Mapping: Unseen Landscapes’. Encouraging peer-to-peer discussion, this is an opportunity for children and teachers to focus and reflect on multiple perspectives, enhancing engagement and enjoyment of learning through art. To conclude, learn about the artist and her work, inspiring you to create artworks back in the classroom!

Guided by Deirdre, our learning and engagement coordinator, use Visual Thinking Strategies to expand pupils’ thoughts on ‘what’s going on in these artworks’.

For all queries and bookings email Deirdre:

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is an inquiry-based method of visual processing – looking, describing and discussing what we see in a work of art. It is about listening to others, responding and expanding thoughts and new possibilities revealed within group engagement. VTS improves oral and visual literacy, problem solving and collaborative interactions among peers. Suitable for all ages, VTS tours are best with groups of 5 or more.
