pRecognition an exhibition of artwork from Uillinn 's Children and Young People's programmes this year
6 June to 6 July at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre
At Uillinn we are dedicated to providing a rich and stimulating learning experience into the Arts, for children and young people. This experience can be a fleeting on day visit or a year-long in depth project, meeting with artists, investigating artwork and making their own. This exhibition of young artists work is a snapshot of this years’ work by children and young people with a variety of artforms explored, from stop motion animation to large scale collaborative drawings from three programmes: Primary School Tours, Art Club, Creative Schools TY with Skibbereen Community School. In each of the programmes the young artists took part in curating their own work, decision making and selecting the pieces they found most successful in expressing their themes.
As part of the exhibition, we will be launching a podcast series with Gavin Buckley on Uillinn's programming for Children
Opportunities for children (3 – 13) to access and engage with a broad range of arts activities, processes and art forms including visual art, performance, music, dance and drama.
We support children to explore alternative ways of communication with others and encourage ideas that are personal and inventive.
We emphasis the creative process, value artistic expression, encourage spontaneity and risk-taking and celebrate difference.
