The Organic Artist: FREE Children’s Art Workshops
This June 10th, Tuar Ard Art Centre will hold a day of visual art workshops for children as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2023. Titled The Organic Artist, these workshops will engage participants in fun, creative, artistic, innovative and interactive art-making activities with an emphasis on sustainability through the use of natural and recycled materials. We also hope to draw the attention of children to the problems of environmental pollution in conjunction with World Ocean Day which takes place on June 8th.
There will be three workshops on the day catering for children aged from 3 to 15 years which will be facilitated by our friends in Art Box. The first two workshops will explore the ancient Japanese art of origami using recycled paper. The third workshop which is aimed at slightly older children, will look at ways we can use organic material from the local environment such as fruits, vegetables and flowers to create organic paints, pigments and prints.
These workshops are kindly supported by Creative Ireland, Westmeath Arts and Westmeath County Council.
Booking is essential as places are limited. To book a spot call Barbara on 086 2036091.
