Ongoing

Workshop with artist Liliane Puthod and 4th Year students from Donahies Community School.

Teen Culture Club is one of our programmes for young people, in which we work with second level schools and youth initiatives, on facilitating thoughtful and creatively stimulating encounters with our collection and exhibition programmes.

In the Teen Culture Club programme professional artists from our Hugh Lane Gallery Panel of Artists and Guides facilitate young people to have stimulating and creative encounters with art and our exhibition programme.

The format for Teen Culture Club can vary but it often involves each school working with two artists over two 1.5 hour sessions at the gallery. Each session includes a discussion on selected artworks on exhibition. This is done in a welcoming environment in which the young people are encouraged to express their own thoughts and observations on the works. They then engage in an artist-led workshop in our dedicated studio space, exploring some of the concepts and/or techniques and materials that they encountered in the artworks on display.

If you are a second-level school teacher, a student, a youth leader, a member of a youth group or a parent and are interested in taking part in Teen Culture Club please contact Education Curator Cleo Fagan on [email protected]

    Ahead of the Andy Warhol Three Times Out exhibition (6 October 23 – 28 January 24), this special pre-exhibition project took place with 4th and 5th Year students from Donahies Community School, Dublin 13, and St Patrick’s Cathedral Grammar School in Dublin 8. Between March and May 2023, artists Liliane Puthod, Michelle Hall, Tara Carroll and Helena Gouveia Monteiro worked with the students, in their own classrooms and in the gallery, to creatively explore the work of artist Andy Warhol and related themes and artists, through discussion and artistic activity. In the autumn of 2023, the students returned to the gallery, to visit the Andy Warhol Three Times Out exhibition, having already given time and consideration to his enduring and iconic work.

  • Teen Culture Club 2022

    In 2022, we worked with St Michael’s Secondary School, Finglas, Loreto College, Crumlin, Sandymount Educate Together and Drimnagh Castle, Walkinstown; and artists Megan Scott, Kimberly Griffith, Michelle Hall, Helena Gouveia Monteiro and Janine Davidson.  The programme included discursive and artistic explorations of the following: works by Niamh McCann in The Tableaux Vivants exhibition, the Francis Bacon studio, The Map by Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon, works by Eleanor McCaughey and Amanda Doran in the Bones in the Attic exhibition and work by Patrick Graham in his solo exhibition. With the programme for Loreto Crumlin, we partnered with Fighting Words, who did a third session in November in their own classroom exploring feminist themes through the work of artist Alice Maher with writer Michelle Walshe and artist Megan Scott, connecting with their previous workshops in the gallery looking at the Bones in the Attic exhibition and The Map.

During this Teen Culture Club with students from Loreto Crumlin, artist Michelle Hall worked with a 4th year group to explore the vibrant work of artists Amanda Doran and Eleanor McCaughey from the Bones in the Attic exhibition.

The students created a collage from printed poster size reproductions of paintings from the Hugh Lane Collection. Each student was given a different art work as a base for the activity.

….We explored the concept of collage as well as different techniques such as cutting-out, adding, replacing, transforming, tearing, or displacing.
