Schools: Gesture and Action Drawing

Jan 25 2009 10:00AM

Limerick City Gallery of Art is delighted to offer a full and exciting Programme of Schools’ events for Spring 2009, beginning with a Secondary School  ‘Meet the Artist’ event. Local artist Gillian Kenny will utilise a life-drawing session  to develop the students drawing skills, encouraging a loosening of controlled styles. Working on large pages, the 'Gesture & Action Drawing' workshop focuses on fast, expressive drawings which challenge the students to work intuitively. Techniques in mark-making are explored through the session, as students experiment with pencil marks, graphite and conté. 

These 'Gesture & Action Drawing' sessions are aimed at secondary school art-students with a particular interest in drawing. Three sessions are scheduled 10-10.45am, 11-11.45am and 12-12.45pm on Friday 16th January. Art teachers should contact the gallery for further information.

Gillian Kenny is a Limerick based painter. Recent visits to Canada and Mexico have informed her practice. Gillian has worked extensively with Ballymun Regeneration, Limerick Youth Service and with a variety of other community groups. She will have a major solo exhibition at Limerick City Gallery of Art in June followed by a solo exhibition in Toronto, Canada .
