This summer, the National Gallery of Ireland are offering students aged 14 – 18 the opportunity to spend a full day at the Gallery with a recognised artist.
Three separate day-long workshops have been designed for teens with a demonstrated interest in art in the areas of:
- Textiles (11th July with Fiona Harrington)
- Illustration (15th August with Declan Shalvey)
- Printmaking (25th July with Elaine Leader)
They are tailored to allow participants to expand their existing portfolio for college applications and to improve skills while studying art.
The workshops will allow time for discussion and also investigation of a number of skills, techniques, tools and materials within each discipline. They will also provide suggestion and advice for developing work further.
