Event description
This drawing workshop focuses on capturing details of Modernist Architect Andy Devane in his design for Saint Mary's National Girls School.

About this event

Complimenting the Architectural Cycle Tour, we have programmed an intergenerational ‘Slow Architecture Day’ event, aimed at giving people time to view, draw and enjoy the details of Andy Devane's beautiful Modernist school courtyard at their own pace.

Sketch Out invites artists of all ages and abilities to take part in a free architectural art workshop within the school yard of Saint Mary's Girls National School, Bishop's Street, King's Island, Limerick.

Guided by experienced artist facilitators from ArtLimerick community group, participants will have the unique opportunity to spend time observing and illustrating the built environment of this sophisticated Modernist masterpiece. A Limerick born architect and Taliesin Fellowship awardee, Andy Devane left Ireland for the US in 1946 aged 29 to be an apprentice architect to Frank Lloyd Wright.

No art experience is necessary, and all ages and abilities are very welcome. The workshop will last for three hours, and although participants are asked to bring their own drawing materials; some materials will be provided.

This three hour workshop will take place outdoors and will adhere to all Irish public safety measures.

To learn more about the architect and the building, we would recommend that you watch 'A Conversation with the City' by Peter Carroll which was specially commissioned in 2021 to celebrate this buildings 70th anniversary.

Organiser Open House Limerick

Organiser of Sketch Out

The popular festival of architecture, Open House Limerick, is celebrating its 10th year in Limerick City and County with the 2021 theme ‘Architecture is Reconnecting’. To reduce the number of large gatherings, the events will be staggered over a number of weeks with initial proceedings commencing during Heritage Week, which runs this year from Saturday August 14th to Sunday August 22nd. The Open House Limerick weekend will run from the 29th - 31st October 2021.

In recognition of the isolation shared over the past 18 months, Open House Limerick 2021 will be reconnecting visitors and participants to their built heritage, local contemporary architecture and shining a spotlight on lesser known well-designed public places in their area. In addition, Open House Limerick will engage with designers and architects to commission a new pavilion as a space of reconnection.

All events, which are free of charge, will either be held outdoors, self-guided or presented online.
