Look forward | Look closer: Post-Primary Digital Workshops SOLD OUT

Join artist Vita Ryan for an interactive Zoom workshop exploring portraiture and identity. Students will be introduced to key works from the exhibitions, followed by a practical activity. The workshop will be broadcast live to your classroom from the artist's studio.

With the wearing of face coverings a part of current daily life much of our expression now relies on the eyes. This is a principal mode of human connection, communication and expression in real life. 

In portraiture the eyes have always been a crucial part of the success in capturing a person, their character & feelings. The ‘gaze’, perhaps relevant now more than ever, is the element of portraiture explored in this workshop.

Students will investigate how the gaze features in some of the work of this year’s ZPP artists. Following this exploration they will then begin to create their own self-portrait with a focus on their eyes.

Webinar Workshop: Mondrian's Forest SOLD OUT

Due to popular demand, we are delighted to offer a webinar-style version of this workshop to allow more schools to connect with the Gallery and create their own Mondrian-inspired work.

In this interactive Zoom workshop, work with artist Fala Buggy to discover Mondrian's ways of thinking about line and colour. Using simple materials in your classroom, explore how Mondrian developed his abstract painting style from a love of nature and trees.

This is a process-led workshop which will let students explore and discover the creative techniques behind Mondrian’s abstract painting. They will learn about his life, his artwork, and his inspiration. Students will get to implement what they learn in their own experimental artworks. They will also get an opportunity to develop their visual literacy by speaking about and identifying abstract art.

This webinar-style event will be broadcast live to schools across the country direct from Fala’s home studio. Full details and teachers’ notes will be emailed to you in advance of the workshop.
