Venue: Highlanes Gallery

Admission: EUR8.00

Join exhibiting artist Kathy Tynan for a special Highlanes Gallery's Midterm Workshop on Thursday February 20th.

Starting with a Children's Session; 11:30am to 1:00pm followed by a Young/Adult Session; 2:00pm to 3:30pm, this workshop focuses on the research process that takes place when considering the subject matter of a painting. With the use of view finders all participants will identify, think and meditate on the visual particularities of the gallery and its immediate surroundings.

Together with Kathy, children and adult sessions will use a technique used in the Michael Chekov School of Acting to take in and remember the image that they/we choose.

After making a preparatory sketch on paper of the image, participants will make a small painting, using gouache paint on gesso board to represent the image.

The workshop will begin with Kathy discussing her own work within the exhibition (Two Painters: Kathy Tynan & Andrew Vickery) currently on view at the gallery, and the research process of Kathy’s art practice.

Guide age group for morning session is focused on children aged 5 - 13yrs with our second afternoon session for Young People aged 15 and over, and adults. No experience necessary.

Please note that materials will be supplied, but for our Childrens Session make sure that children have an old t-shirt/oversized shirt to protect their clothes.

Please note Highlanes Gallery updated its Child Safety Policy in 2019. If you would like to read the Policy ahead of the workshop, please email requesting it to to be sent a PDF, or on the day to read it at Registration at Front of House.
