Next week the Easter holidays roll around once more and we have some great activities in store at The Irish Museum of Modern Art for children of all ages.

Young People
For teenagers we offer very participative creative experiences for 12-15 year olds and 15-18 year olds. These artist-led workshops involve looking, discussing, and making, as well as engaging with IMMA’s exhibitions and Collection programmes, and working with contemporary artists.
