Artist—Creative Schools Ireland

Tullyallen National School

Tullyallen National School (County Louth, Ireland) is a Creative School designated under Creative Ireland. The school’s Forest Studio is an environment for land art, site specific writing and outdoor studios, which encourage artist collectives amongst primary school students.

“Creative Ireland is a nationally funded culture-based programme designed to promote individual, community, and national well being. The core proposition is that participation in cultural activity drives personal and collective creativity, with significant implications for individual and societal well being and achievement”.

“A Creative School develops and celebrates the arts and creativity. It establishes a range of collaborative opportunities to strengthen its relationships with the broader cultural and community infrastructure. The aim is for every school in Ireland to fully embrace the arts and creativity, ensuring a positive experience and strong outcomes for children and young people”.
