Children from St.Maries of the Isle Primary School and Sundays Well Girls and Boys National School. In collaboration with Cork Public Museum, Cork Centre for Architectural Education CIT/UCC, Department of Applied Arts, CIT Crawford College of Art & Design.

In this project school children explored the creative and inquisitive processes of Art, Architecture and Archaeology. Emphasising the importance of sketchbook keeping and the art of drawing which within these and many other professions play a central role in recording, planning, communication and development of ideas. Beginning with a school based introductory workshop the children were introduced to the tools in everyday use at these places of work.
