You asked, we listened. Extra dates added to the Art Academy Summer camps. 2nd-6th July 2018 for 5-8 years old. The 9th-13th dates sold out almost immediately and I know a few of you were disappointed.
There are 3 places remaining on the 9-13 years olds camp on July 16th – 20th. Get in touch: email@example.com
Local artist Sheila Flaherty will present an exhibition of her drawings (including one large wall drawing) at the Minerva Gallery* during the week of the festival.
Poet Catherine Ann Cullen will open the exhibition on Thursday, May 17, at 6pm.
Artist’s statement: Queens of Art is a celebration of successful female artists throughout history. Consisting of 9 portraits, this series of art, focuses the spotlight on these artists and their stories. They serve to remind us of our own individual life goals and inspire us to strive towards them and find success as they have.
If you didn’t make it to art camp at the Academy, I have something for you.

As an artists and/or art teacher I believe that it absolutely imperative that we are the perpetual learner. Here in Ireland there are little hidden pockets of artistic gold waiting to be absorbed. I intend to seek these out, enjoy them for myself to build on my artistic knowledge but also share them with you.
One such gem can be found in Block T. Recently I have had the pleasure of completed the realism oil painting course there, under the expert tutelage of Florentine academy multi-award winning artist Nicholas Benedict Robinson. I will share with you my journey on his course in the images below. It being by no means the poster model but it gives you some idea of how I progressed the painting. We worked from direct observation of the live model for 6 Wednesday evenings. Nicholas is an excellent teacher of this method.
The good news is there is another such upcoming workshop so don’t feel you have missed out. There is a full week coming up 31st July – 4th of August. Keep an eye on the Block T website and Nicholas’s website for further courses. You can check how I got on at the last workshop below:
