Event description

Description

Friday 28 July 11.30am - 1.00pm High Hairstyles; Powdered Poufs, Periwigs & Pastel Portraiture

Led by facilitator Julie Duhy, this workshop exploring ideas in the exhibition Bristle: Hair and Hegemony begins by exploring its title; hair in relation to culture, society, identity, and ethnicity, and concepts of hairstyles, the history of Coiffure, from Marie Antoinette and Washington to Marge Simpson and Donald Trump to other artist’s work that depicted hair through the centuries. Children will work with soft pastel on their very own portraits, using cotton wool to achieve the huge hair. Mixed media will be introduced including diamonds and feathers to decorate the drawn pouffes.

Workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, and charged at €6 per child, with booking essential.

About Children’s Workshops at Highlanes Gallery

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.

This workshop is presented on the occasion of Bristle: Hair and Hegemony. Consider a visit with all of the family. Book a tour! Read more about the exhibition http://www.highlanes.ie/Activity.aspx?ActivityID=3327


The exhibition continues until 23 September 2017.
