Kids & Teen Art Classes are back with a bang for 2015 at Limerick Printmakers!

limerick printmakers kids &teen art classesLimerick Printmakers was set up in 1999 by three BA printmaking graduates from the Limerick School of Art and Design, Claire Boland, Kari Fry & Melissa O’Brien.

The Limerick Printmakers Studio & Gallery provide facilities for artists to make prints using many methods, some of which include etching, lithography, relief and monoprint. Artists can make use of these facilities by joining on a membership basis. At present there are approximately 50 members working in the studio.

Limerick Printmakers also hold classes for both adults and children, workshops and demonstrations in schools and other venues.

They are delighted to announce a new term of classes for kids and teens with their experienced tutors Dee, Tara and Brian for ages 4-16. The classes focus on a range of methods from painting to clay modelling and of course lots of printing using themes that the students can get excited about. Small class numbers ensure that each child gets as much guidance as they want. Limerick Printmakers classes are designed for specific age groups with age appropriate themes and activities. They also encourage creative development in a safe and fun environment.

They are also excited to now offer a print led class for ages 13 – 17. Their tutor Brian is an experienced secondary school teacher and can offer the students new skills such as woodcuts & mono prints which may not be offered within the school curriculum.
