Children’s Workshop 12th & 13th August 2017

0 Comment

Over the weekend, The stART Foundation held a workshop at 37d Gallery for the stART Children. The workshop was based on the upcoming exhibition ‘Timeless’ by Patrick Bentley which will be shown at 37d Gallery next month. Patrick’s exhibition will consist of wildlife photography in black and white which was the inspiration for the children and this weekend.

The workshop focused on enhancing the drawing techniques and skills of the children, using materials of a simple nature with a limited palette to black and white, imitating the photography. The children worked wonderfully under the tutelage of Roy Chitwila, our mentor for the workshop. Roy is a former child of stART, who went onto gain an Art Teacher’s Diploma at Evelyn Hone College. Roy came back this weekend to use his newly found skills and give back to the children whose position he was once in himself. 

It was a wonderful weekend, and the end results will be shown in the Children’s area at 37d Gallery on the night of Patricks Exhibition next month. Thank you to everyone who helped and volunteered for the weekend, and Roy Chitwila for mentoring the children.
