The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery, with aquarelles by the author, is a classic story with a simple message: we’re never too old to learn from the wisdom of children and to rediscover our inner child by letting our imagination run wild with possibilities.
For Cruinniú na nÓg 2019 we will give children free reign to paint with aquarelles and create their own stories and exhibit or read them in the presence of their parents (who are also welcome to stay and play as well as listen to the reading of this story).
We propose to have a reading of the book and a projection of the animated film The Little Prince during the evening. It is important for youth to hold onto their creative imaginations in this age of technology.
To encourage other cultures to participate, we’ll have the story read and available for children in English and Portuguese, as there is a large community of Brazilians now working and living in and around Claremorris.
Watercolour workshop | 2pm-6pm
Exhibition and screening | from 7pm
