National Drawing Day activities took place in The Laois Arthouse, Stradbally on May 17 from 11am - 1pm.
Both children and adults came along and joined in the fun.
Four workshops were co-ordinated by artists Cathy Carman, Maria O’ Brien, Caroline Keane and Gareth Jenkins. Everyone got to experience all that was on offer. Cathy Carman set up a large scale drawing workshop in the Gallery Space and showed the participants how to draw using all of their senses.
Maria O’ Brien co-ordinated a still life workshop and demonstrated how different mediums could be used to create exciting works of art. Caroline Keane demonstrated paper-making with combined materials. Gareth Jenkins completed a creative art event. An extensive amount of fantastic artwork was created on the day.
