We hope you enjoy this short film for teens exploring Art & Text by artist Marie Farrington.

In this film artist Marie Farrington explores how text has inspired and been incorporated by artists in their art in many diverse ways.

Inspired by these artists and using the example of the evocative line from the poem ‘A Disused Shed in Co. Wexford’ by poet Derek Mahon, Marie shows you how to create your own text and share this text, perhaps a line from poetry or literature that inspires you, on your window and  with the wider world.
