About this Event

Join exhibiting artist Kathy Tynan for this Midterm Workshop on Thursday February 20th Session: 11:30am to 1:00pm

This workshop focuses on the research process that takes place when considering the subject matter of a painting. With the use of view finders children will identify, think and meditate on the visual particularities of the gallery and its immediate surroundings.

Together with Kathy, children will use a technique used in the Michael Chekov School of Acting to take in and remember the image that they/we choose.

Children will then make a preparatory sketch on paper of the image.

After that children will make a small painting, using gouache paint on gesso board to represent the image.

The workshop will begin with Kathy discussing her own work within the exhibition (Two Painters: Kathy Tynan & Andrew Vickery) currently on view at the gallery, and the research process of Kathy’s art practice.

ABOUT

About Children’s Workshops at Highlanes Gallery Workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, with booking essential and priced at €8 per place. Workshops at the gallery are process-based and explore basic concepts and ideas with children as they are looking.

The emphasis is placed on understanding the ideas surrounding the objects. Making objects forms part of that process but is not the only goal of the workshop. For further information, please telephone the gallery reception on telephone at 041-9803311 or email info@highlanes.ie

Please note that materials will be supplied, but make sure that children have an old t-shirt/oversized shirt to protect their clothes.

Please note Highlanes Gallery updated its Child Safety Policy in 2019. If you would like to read the Policy ahead of the workshop, please email requesting it to info@highlanes.ie to be sent a PDF, or on the day to read it at Registration at Front of House.
