An Exploration of the Impact of a Collaborative Art Project on Wellbeing in Junior Cycle.
Through this action research study I wanted to investigate if a collaborative art project can enhance learner wellbeing in Junior Cycle. An underlying intention was to explore the potential of wellbeing as a core component for a curriculum, methodology and practice for a teacher of Visual Art. My objectives were to identify learner wellbeing concerns and use their voice to design, develop and execute a collaborative mural project that could transform a negative space into a positive one and to evaluate its effectiveness in terms of student wellbeing.
