THE GEORGE WYLLIE EDUCATION INITIATIVE IN SCHOOLS
Creating art, music, drama, poetry, prose, George Wyllie was the archetypal Curriculum for Excellence man.
The George Wyllie Education Initiative has at its core, the experiences and outcomes of Curriculum for Excellence, and their extension into the new qualifications. In a variety of curriculum contexts, the work of the artist can be explored at the full range of stages and levels.
Currently over 90 schools, in 9 different education authorities, have expressed an interest in including his work in their curriculum.
Each young person taking part has done so in the context and at the level appropriate for them, whether that was in a pre-school setting or in an Advanced Higher class.
The examples below describe what is happening in some of those classrooms. Each school is going in its own direction, prioritising specific learning.
Details are also available about the curriculum contexts in which the work of George Wyllie is explored.
