On January 30 The Laois Arthouse invited the 6th class pupils of St Colman’s National School in Stradbally to view their current exhibition on display, called Shine.
An exhibition tour and a tour of the Arthouse was organised for the pupils as part of the visit.
Vera McEvoy, the artist behind the exhibition, gave a presentation to the students about her work.
She also gave the students an insight into the life of an artist, providing them with knowledge about each aspect of a project such as this.
The students expressed great interest in Vera’s story and enjoyed the tour of the Arthouse.
The Laois Arthouse in Stradbally gives tours to groups, and requests for these can be made to Muireann Ní Chonaill, Arts Officer and Laois Arthouse manager.
