Createschool was founded by Peter Baxter and has been successfully delivering workshops now for almost 20 years, encouraging students to collaborate, unleash their creative sides and discover hidden talents. From the early beginnings with Songschool, the Createschool team has grown and our varied passions and interests have led us to expand our workshop portfolio into a much broader range of creative and multimedia offerings, including stop motion animation, podcasting and moviemaking. Thereby offering a wide selection of workshops to choose from which can be tailored to individual school and venue needs.
We encourage students to develop their own creativity and express themselves through moving images, words or music. Our commitment to delivering excellent and rewarding education experiences remains as strong as ever.
Our workshops focus on capturing, harnessing and sharing creativity and often this can be best achieved through using mobile digital technology (phones, iPads etc). Technology is used for its creative application rather than simply its practical capability. Whilst we predominantly use Apple technology, we ensure that everything we teach can also be done on open source software for PC laptops, Android smart phones etc.
Some important practical stuff...
Workshops are designed to fit into existing teaching plans or can be developed as a separate project ( based on themes such as the Environment, DevEd and Mental Health)
An ability to use technology, be an expert LEGO builder, direct a movie, sing or play an instrument is NOT a pre-requisite!
Our workshops are suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities (8 years old and beyond...!)
Workshops are delivered in schools, art centres, venues and festivals throughout Ireland
Workshops can be customised to suit specific requirements
All equipment and materials are supplied
