Event description

Description

Wednesday 26 July 11.30am - 1.00pm Observing, Considering, Mark Making

Led by artist and gallery invigilator Yvonne Byrne, children attending this workshop will explore ideas around observational drawing, the process involved in making an abstract drawing, and the mark making involved in drawing. Inspired by the work of exhibiting artists Alice Maher, Cristina Bunello and Andrew Folan, and focusing on tone, light and shade, and mark making, children will first make observational charcoal drawings of hair. The second part of the workshop will involve investigating abstract mark making using feathers (hair) where children will be encouraged to use the materials in a free and creative manner.

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.
