Artists in Schools; Bolton, Bury and Rochdale (AiS) aims to inspire teaching and learning by forging partnerships between the arts and education.
'The Drumcroon policy is to give all young people, irrespective of age, their teachers and the Borough's communities access to the range, breadthand variety of the visual arts. Exhibitions by contemporary makers are organised to provide challenging opportunities which widen horizons and embrace change. To give further insight and understanding, the centre provides its visitors with opportunities to engage in related practical activities. Each exhibition is placed into a contextual framework by demonstrating process and excellence through resident artists and through the use of secondary source material which has the potential to range across time, place and culture.'
The Artists in Schools database aims to encourage teachers to use artists in their schools, either on a project basis or in support of an area of the curriculum. The database holds information on artists in all forms: dance, drama, music and visual art.
