The Artists in Schools Programme was initiated in 1994. Since this time the programme has continually evolved and in 2008 the Arts Office of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council partnered with Blackrock Education Centre in delivering the Creative Arts Programme across the primary schools of the county.

The central purpose of the programme is to facilitate a professional Creative Practitioner to collaborate with a primary school class and teacher to explore creativity in the classroom setting through various artforms. A Creative Practitioner is a professional faciltator with an artform background, for example; a Dancer, a Visual Artist, a Writer or a Musician.

Central to the programme are professional development sessions with the participating teachers that are set in Blackrock Education Centre.
