Two Painters - Going to Granny's for Tea by Claire Halpin

Thursday, 9th April 2020 - Thursday, 9th April 2020

Join Claire Halpin for this engrossing workshop where children can remember, imagine and create a special visit to their granny's this Easter

Inspired by Kathy Tynan’s painting titled Yellow Roses in our current exhibition Two Painters: Kathy Tynan and Andrew Vickery, Claire explores this painting with you in her video workshop and prompts you to imagine your own visit to your granny’s or indeed a special Easter get together.

Create the room, the décor, and the people attending, your family, and friends. Who will be there, cousins, aunts and uncles, and what will you eat?

Workshop Information: Materials to gather
A3 Card/Paper
Colour Pencils/Crayons/Markers
Glue Stick/Sellotape
Colour Paper
Pattern Paper/Wrapping Paper

If you're working with younger children, please. view the video in advance to help prepare yourself.

It is shorter than a real time workshop which would normally be 1 hour 30 minutes, but you can stop and start the video at stages so that children can take part slowly and reflectively with the session.

Exhibit your Work!

Parents/ guardians, email us an images of the children's completed work, together with their name, age, and artwork title to info@highlanes.ie and we will have them up to view on our Facebook and Instagram alongside the work of other attendees!

Teenage and adult artwork responding to the session also welcome too.
