Adult Art Course: Nature Made
Thursdays 11, 18 and 25 August, 2022, 2-4 pm
Led by ecological artist Ashleigh Downey Nature Made is a multi-sensory meander with nature through art at the Hugh Lane Gallery. Through discussions in front of artworks, illustrated lectures and practical art sessions, you are invited to re-imagine our place in the world by exploring our personal and shared nature experiences. Through a series of nature focused methodologies participants will examine different ways of engaging with the natural environment. Together over the course of three Thursdays we will explore the concept of ‘place’, and how we interact with our surroundings though both our personal and shared experiences. With mindful observation, playfully investigation and creative mark-making we will observe our current relationship with nature, and consider new ways of developing our human-nature interconnectedness.
Materials are provided.
Ashleigh Downey is also suggesting that participants bring a simple sketchbook / journal
