Teacher Training

Learn from Professionals:

Artzone Teachers are not just Art Teachers.  They are accomplished Artists in their own right.  They research and develop projects for the Primary School Curriculum on a daily basis.  You can spend your Croke Park Hours with us, have the curriculum explained, join in a hands-on workshop and walk away with a handbook full of projects and ideas for your classroom.

Courses Available:

Based on our own study  of the Primary Schools Visual Art Curriculum Artzone has designed a set of practical modular in-service teacher training workshops to suit primary school teachers.

  • Paint & Colour
  • Fabric & Fibre
  • Print Making
  • 3D Construction
  • Clay Construction
  • …  Model Making … more to follow

The Workshop Approach:

In any two hour session our approach is to run hands on workshops in your chosen subject building teachers’ confidence in this aspect of the art and crafts curriculum. The agenda is:-

  • The Curriculum Explained
  • A Hands on Workshop (You Create a Piece of Art);
  • Your Questions Answered
  • A Course handbook full of step by step Projects for all ages;
  • After Course Mentoring (phone, email or one-to-one support after training)

Teachers walk away with the experience, their art work, a step by step handbook, and lots of ideas for projects.

Your Place or Ours:

Our teachers are happy to visit your school and run the workshop during school hours, after school hours, during term breaks.  Otherwise you are welcome to come to Artzone Studios in Rathfarnham for a truly artistic experience.


We attended a Fabric and Fibre workshop with Liam from Artzone. It was great fun and we made garden scenes using a variety of fabrics and materials. We look forward to bringing these ideas into our classrooms. Liam catered for all ages and abilities and these lessons will be very enjoyable for the children! Because the workshop was based around the new Primary Curriculum, I really did feel it will help influence the projects I choose with the kids and how to break them down into easy step by step tasks. Can’t wait for the next one!

      Hi Bernadette, We missed the deadline for gaining approval this year (back in February). We have a range of courses ready to go and will be launching properly for 2016. Sorry, Paul
