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:
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
