Virtually There

Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership works with artists on children’s education. Long-term project Virtually There places artists in schools via the interactive whiteboard. Year by year, artists work closely with teachers to take children through a programme of art practice from their studios. This year, 10 schools across Northern Ireland are working with 10 artists from North and South and further afield. Recently, Kids’ Own received a ‘More and Better’ grant through the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to carry out action research into Virtually There, and quarto are undertaking this research.
