CHILDREN AND TEENS’ WORKSHOPS
Me + The Mo°n Process Art Workshop
Children and parents will first create their own sketch book with the guidance of a fully qualified art teacher. After receiving creative prompts and ideas along with age-appropriate drawing tools, families will then set off on a drawing tour of the wonderful scenery and wildlife in Doneraile Park. This Process Art workshop is designed to stimulate curiosity, creativity and confidence.
Children will be encouraged to look more deeply at landscapes, townscapes and items in nature that they may be used to seeing every day, and be given quick demonstrations on analytical drawing and finding negative spaces.
