#ShowUsYourArt - Week 6 ANIMALS

#ShowUsYourArt - Week 6 ANIMALS

Fri 1 - Fri 8 May 2020

At this point, we're all starting to feel like animals! Why not lean into it and have some fun! Draw your favourite animal, create a face mask, build a habitat, make up your own animal creation, design an outfit for your pet ... the possibilities are endless! Why not use some objects from around the house to create some animal footprints?

Check out Anne Cradden's Toddler Printing Workshop for some helpful tips on making stampers! And Check out Genevieve Harden's Cardboard Animal Mask Making Workshop too.

Simply take a photo of your child's artwork and email it to Paula Nolan Quinn at paula@draiocht.ie by the deadline each week. Tell us your child's first name & age (this may be posted on social media with your permission with their gorgeous artwork for all to enjoy). We hope to have an exhibition of some of the works entered later in the year so keep your work safe!

Week 6 Theme: ANIMALS
Enter your art by email to: paula@draiocht.ie
Deadline: Friday 8th May 11am.

We'll pick 3 random winners and prizes include Draíocht Movie Tickets and Chocolatey Treats (delivered to you after we're all back in action!)

Let's get creating! We are super excited for you to #ShowUsYourArt

#ShowUsYourArt - Week 7 FAMILY

Fri 8 - Fri 15 May 2020

All of this time at home has meant that we’re spending more time with our families, so why not express how you feel about them through art! Use this theme to think about what family means to you. Is it your relatives? Your closest friends? A community, or group that you’re a part of? Maybe it’s a famous or fictitious family that you’re thinking about. Do you know the family tree of your pet? What about your favourite toys and teddies? Whatever you decide to create, we’re sure you’re going to put your full heart into it!

Simply take a photo of your child's artwork and email it to Paula Nolan Quinn at paula@draiocht.ie by the deadline each week. Tell us your child's first name & age (this may be posted on social media with your permission with their gorgeous artwork for all to enjoy).

We hope to have an exhibition of some of the works entered later in the year so keep your work safe!
