What’s the Story? Art Workshop with the National Gallery of Ireland

  • Workshop

Join facilitators from the National Gallery of Ireland to create your very own book! In this pre-recorded workshop, facilitators will guide you through Jack Yeats’ lively painting  – ‘The Liffey Swim’.  

This painting shows a crowd of people cheering brave swimmers racing in the River Liffey. Just as Jack Yeats celebrates the joy of people coming together as a community, let’s do the same by making art together in our homes! 

Using everyday materials from around your home, we will make our own accordion notebook and fill it with a story based on ‘The Liffey Swim’. 

For this workshop you will need: 

  • A scissors/fingers to tear 

  • Card from a cereal box/pizza box/recycling bin 

  • Masking tape or glue of any sort 

  • Printer paper or newspaper or sheets of any type of paper 

  • Something to draw or colour with 

  • Optional: Scraps for collaging
