Leaving Certificate Art History Appreciation  Revision Day

Leaving Certificate Art History Appreciation Revision Day

Tue 5 Nov 2019 10.30AM-1.30PM Draíocht Studio // FREE

This unique revision day is designed for Leaving Certificate art students and teachers. Using the exhibition ‘Estuary’, we will explore and support art student’s preparation for the Leaving Certificate Art Appreciation section, through a series of talks and practical activities.
Guided by artist Bridget Flannery, as well as Estuary exhibition curators, Una Sealy and Joshua Sex, participants will gain an understanding of the curatorial process and installation considerations. Students will then meet with artist Martin Gale, whose work features in the exhibition and on the Leaving Certificate curriculum, to hear about his processes, techniques and inspiration. A facilitated tour of the exhibition will focus on two art works, to compare and contrast style, subject matter and artistic techniques.

Places are free, but limited and must be booked in advance with Draíocht’s Box Office 01-8852622.
