The IMMA Collection is a unique resource which is made available to the public through a vibrant programme of temporary exhibitions and projects. Collection Exhibitions may explore the work of an individual artist, or address a theme or historic period.
Our Visitor Engagement Team staff Paola and Evy welcome you to experiment with watercolor techniques, in particular using masking fluid.
For inspiration, Paola and Evy have chosen a seminal artist from the IMMA Collection, Mary Farl-Powers. Despite a short life, she changed and broadened the spectrum of watercolour sketching and printing techniques.
Taking inspiration from the beautiful grounds of IMMA , participants will be encouraged to pause and absorb the mood and quality of their environment. Using this as a stepping stone, they will paint the tones and colours they see and the patterns and curves around them to create their art work, figurative or abstracted as their fancy takes them. This is to be a reflective time about nature and its rhythm, the impact it can have and the soothing and grounding effect of nature, its playfulness and uplifting effect.
Each participant will be lent a kit with all necessary materials for this workshop. This can be collected at the registration station at The People’s Pavillion and brought back after the workshop.
This class is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list email Chris Jones [email protected]
Meeting Point: The People’s Pavilion, located on the front lawn, at 11am.
