Module Description: This module aims to introduce students to the Artistic Elements within the disciplines of Music, Art and Drama. The Artistic Elements will be central to the concepts explored within experiential workshops.

Appropriate learning provocations will be used to demonstrate how best to promote authentic experiences for the child birth to three and three to six. National Frameworks, Regulations and Guidelines (e.g. Aistear and Siolta) will inform the structure, delivery and assessment of the module.
