About this event

Join artist Claire Halpin for these mixed media workshops to explore image, picture, collage, painting and composition. Over three workshops we will experiment using found printed materials in different ways – transforming, reversing, cutting, repeating, layering and drawing and painting to create your own artworks.

“In my paintings I use imagery from lots of different sources such as art history, TV, media, newspapers, National Geographic, surveillance, maps, archaeology and ancient civilization. As the title Jigmap suggests I piece these together, like a jigsaw map to create a narrative through painting. Like a Renaissance painting -everything is happening in the same time and place.”

Claire Halpin is a Dublin born and based visual artist, curator and arts educator. In her role as arts educator and facilitator over many years, Claire has worked with a wide range of groups from primary school, secondary school, university, adults and older years in a range of settings from school, gallery, museum to community and now online platforms. She is a trained and highly experienced Azure facilitator- a slow enquiry based approach to looking at artworks designed for people with dementia.

This is a series of workshops taking place on Thursdays May 5th, 12th, and 19th.
