What’s New in 2018!


A New Year, A New Leaf and New Classes at Loughrea School of Art!

So, what’s new in 2018?

This year we introduce our Saturday afternoon Parent and Child Art Classes. These are a great way to spend some quality, creative time with the kids, whether it’s your child, your niece, nephew or grandchild. You’ll also have a piece of art to take home and hang on the wall. Scheduled to take place on Saturday afternoons over four weeks from 1.30 to 3pm for children aged 7-10 years old.  The fee for four weeks, which includes all of your materials, is €80.

We’re currently seeking expressions of interest so the start date is to be decided but if you’re interested in taking part just fill in the short form below and we’ll be in touch with you.

Teens After School Art Classes

For those teens that are busy on Saturday mornings, we offer Thursday afternoon after school art classes.

This class is also ideal for students wishing to compile a portfolio of work for third level art education.

We’ve compiled a set of classes specifically tailored for teens that want to advance their artistic abilities. These classes will cover the essentials for effective drawing and painting, covering perspective, proportion, figure drawing, tonal values and application to popular mainstream art styles such as Manga and Anime.

Classes will run weekly until summer 2018 so six classes can be taken anytime. Once six classes have been attended, and you wish to continue, you simply enrol for a further six classes.

Classes start at 4.15 to 5.45 pm. The fee for six weeks is €100. The fee includes all materials.

Again, the start date is to be decided based on expression of interest and sufficient numbers. If you have a teen that’s interested in taking part just complete the short form below and we’ll be in touch.

 

Kid’s Stop Motion Animation Courses

Due to the popularity of our recent two day Stop Motion Animation

Workshops we’ve decide to schedule six week Stop Motion Courses.

This course will introduce children to the process of stop motion animation made famous by the likes of Aardman Studios with short films such as Morph and animated features such as Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, Flushed Away etc.

Over the period, children will be taught how to make their own sets and models and how to edit and add sound effects to their finished animation.

The course is designed for children aged 8 to 12 years old.

Each student will require a smart phone or tablet.

The fee for six weeks is €100 and includes all materials.

Classes will be scheduled for Saturday afternoons but the starting date is to be decided based on numbers.
