Young EVA: Art & Philosophy
The Young EVA education programme was created in 1986 and presents a wide variety of educational and cultural programmes to schools in Limerick city and county, widely acknowledged as being the first encounter many future artists and arts professionals had with contemporary art in Limerick. These educational programmes have helped foster and develop younger audiences from the ages of 4–18 years, by encouraging engagement with and understanding of contemporary art.
Ormston House is delighted to host an Art & Philosophy workshop as part of Young EVA for EVA International, Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art. For Young EVA 2016, Katy Fitzpatrick (Gallery Educator and Curator) and Aislinn O’Donnell (Philosopher and Educator) will work with participants from Scoil Mháthair Dé and Southill Le Chéile After School Service. This is the second time that Katy and Aislinn have worked with EVA to materialise this project. Over a period of seven weeks a variety of workshops will take place both in the classroom and at exhibition venues throughout the city, working with artist Alice Maher, and concluding in a public workshop at Limerick City Gallery of Art.
