Associate Partner: Permission to Wonder

  • Print

The Hugh Lane is an Associate Partner in Dublin City Council's Arts Office 'Permission to Wonder' project. This three-year EU funded Erasmus +  project aims to support educators from local arts and education communities to test the Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) method to enhance learning with visual arts. As part of this project, educators from the Hugh Lane are participating in VTS training and the VTS method has been used as part of our programmes. For example, during specific Coffee Conversation and First Friday Culture Club talks on artworks from the collection as well as the Wonder Club VTS tours for adults and children. The VTS approach to looking at and discussing art is also being tested with primary school children from Catherine Mcauley NS as part of the Hugh Lane's participation in this project.
