This exhibition provides opportunities for exploring children’s creative and imaginative potential in Visual Art with a particular emphasis on Visual Art and Science education (STEAM).
Four interactive prototype helmets are on display as part of this exhibition, which are a combination of students and children’s ideas coming together to solve a particular problem, in this case how to construct an optical device exploring the art of perception.
Come and try on these helmets to see how a bee, a jumping spider and a fly sees the world!
The exhibition includes works by students from Kildare primary schools who explored the theme during workshops with local artists. The exhibition will highlight the importance of the ‘A’ (ARTS) in STEAM, allowing students to embrace innovation, enhance creative and critical thinking skills and solve problems.
The School of Looking MIC is collaboration between Visual Art Lecturer Anne Marie Morrin (Mary Immaculate College), Connolly and Cleary, MIC B.Ed Visual Art Students and Donoughmore National School, Limerick.
