Schoolhouse for Art May Art Fest

Not only is National drawing day 2016 just around the corner but so is the Summer !!

We are so happy about this here at the Schoolhouse for Art that as well as our plans to join forces with the National Gallery of Ireland and celebrate National Drawing day on the 21st of May.

We are going to keep up the celebrations for the full weekend with the …. "Schoolhouse for Art May Art Fest"

The weekend will kick off with the launch of our May art exhibition on Friday evening May 20th from 6:30pm until 8:30pm. Saturday the 21st is National Drawing Dayand as well as having our summer exhibition inside, weather permitting; we will have our easels set up in the sculpture garden for those who wish to take part in a little “urban sketching”. We encourage everyone to get involved and unleash their inner Picasso with the materials provided. We are inviting members of the Urban Sketchers community to the Schoolhouse for Art to spend the day sketching our fabulous surroundings.

In the studio we will have our Summer Art Camp tutors getting ready for this summer’s fun filled art camps. They will be available to answer any questions parents may have and to give the kids a little taste of what the Schoolhouse for Art Summer Art Camp has to offer.

We anticipate a great mix of paintings and artworks in styles, sizes and prices that should guarantee that we’ll have something to suit your taste…and your budget!
