AGES 8 – 12YRS
Over the course of the afternoon, participants will create a series of colourful abstract monoprints. These monoprints will explore colour, composition, mark making and time in relation to painting. The participants will then develop these ideas to create a monoprint cast in plaster.
Jane Fogarty is a visual artist based in Dublin, Ireland. She is interested in the various ways in which we interpret and understand the passing of time and how this translates into visual language. Analogous to time, a painting can be interpreted as an accumulation of moments. Though the work is an exploration of painting, her artistic output has for the most part been sculptural. Working in three-dimensions is a means to explore the individual components of a painting. In addition to her artistic practice, Jane has been involved in numerous educational projects since 2007.
