The Glucksman invites school groups to explore and imagine art in the galleries through a seasonal programme of art workshops.

These sessions are tailored for different age groups to introduce creative and collaborative activities. This season in partnership with UCC Green Campus, we have devised a number of workshops that also explore environmental issues. 

Workshops are 1.5 hours long and are offered throughout the year. For detailed information about a specific workshop for your group, please email Workshops cost €100. Advance booking with the education department is essential for all workshops.   

We also have specific programmes for art teachers to support creative learning in the classroom.
