Wicklow Educate Together National School (WETNS) have recently moved to a brand-new premises located on the outskirts of Wicklow Town. The school is delighted to have been provided with a budget to commission works of art under the Per Cent for Art Scheme funded by the Department of Education and Science. Artists are invited to tender for the project in a two stage process as outlined in the artists brief. WETNS are proud of the school ethos and its unique identity and are eager that our new building and grounds should come to reflect that identity. The addition of art to our new building is an important step in this process. WETNS’s Percent for Art Group are looking for submissions for art for their students and staff that will inspire all, enlighten the children and reflect the ethos of the school and instil pride in the children.
