About the Collection

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.


Explore contemporary art, particularly construction, during a studio workshop and enjoy a guided tour of IMMA Collection: A Fiction Close to Reality.  Artist Rachel Tynan will lead this practical workshop during which primary teachers will discover multiple links to the visual art curriculum.

This workshop is free but booking is essential. Places are limited and booking is on a first come, first served basis. You don’t need any prior knowledge or experience of art-making or to have attended previous workshops in this series. Warm but practical clothing is recommended due to working in studios and using art materials

If you are a primary teacher, this is a great opportunity to:

  • Enjoy the historic setting of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham;
  • Explore a current art exhibition at IMMA;
  • Experience an engaging introduction to creative processes and materials in the company of a contemporary artist.

 

This is the final CPD workshop for primary teachers at IMMA during this academic year. Join the IMMA primary school teacher mailing list for information on upcoming events in the new school year 2019—2020.

 

Date Time
Saturday, 2 March 2019 10:00am-12:30pm
