The Artist Visits,
St. Catherine's National School, Rush, county Dublin,
May – June 2012
In 2012 Mobile Art School* brought nine artists - Isabel Nolan, Tamarin Norwood, Michelle Browne, Sven Anderson, Ruth Lyons, Felicity Clear, Vera Klute, Mark Garry, Emma Haugh - to do a series of artist-led workshops with one 5th class in St. Catherine’s National School in Rush, county Dublin. The aim was to connect primary school children and cutting-edge contemporary art practitioners in a creatively rich context that enabled the exploration of the diverse range of media and concerns employed by today’s visual artists.
* Mobile Art School (2011-2014) was an artists-schools initiative whose workshop and artist-residency programmes sought to simultaneously devise a path between contemporary artists and the educational system, and to support creative modes of learning. Mobile Art School was co-directed and curated with Jennie Guy.
