Turning Corners; Past, Present, & Future Imaginings



Drawing & Collage Workshop with Derek McCluskey

Friday 26 April 11.30 - 13.00

In this workshop led by artist Derek McCluskey and focussing on the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection and two works A Street Scene, Drogheda, 1880 and The Bathe House, by Robert Armstrong, children will consider the townscape of Drogheda and Laurence Street where the gallery is situated as featured in the artworks, as well as in the case of the Cassidy work the story of the painting and the people of 1880, comparing and contrasting to the present day from the horse-drawn carriage, civic buildings like the Tholsel, and the function of the shops to the style, colour and tone of the buildings. Using photographs as taken recently by the artist at the locations featured in the paintings, and working with drawing and collage, children will explore the past, discuss the present and imagine the future.

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.
