Workshops for the Summer Rising Festival, 
Irish Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham, Dublin 8,
July 2014

In the summer of 2014 Mobile Art School worked with artists Ruth Lyons and Karl Burke at The Irish Museum of Modern Art’s garden festival Summer Rising. These rolling family workshops ran all day and could be joined at any time.

For her workshop Ruth Lyons drew on her previous work The Ecstasy of Power, 2009 to create a workshop where families worked together to create ‘prismatic light-catchers’ - objects that caused the diffraction of light. Participants could bring their creation home or add it to the spontaneously initiated collective sculpture that began on the surrounding bushes.

Mobile Art School curator Jennie Guy worked with artist Karl Burke on a workshop during the second weekend of the Summer Rising Festival. For more information on this workshop please visit Mobile Art School website
