Until 6 May 2019, primary school guided tours and educational resources will focus on Gaze, the current exhibition from the IMMA Collection: Freud Project. The exhibition features artworks by Lucian Freud which are on a five-year loan to IMMA. School groups and teachers can explore the works of an artist who is regarded as one of the world’s greatest realist painters.
Alongside Freud’s paintings and prints, visitors will have a great opportunity to engage with an interesting selection of works by other artists from the IMMA Collection, including Stephan Balkenhol, Albrecht Dürer, Ann Hamilton, Rebecca Horn, Annie Leibovitz, Edward McGuire, Rembrandt, Thomas Ruff, and Hannah Starkey.
Primary school children can experience the artworks first-hand, and explore portraiture and self-portraits, as well as images and ideas of family, friends, and pets. Afterwards children respond to their gallery visit through a workshop activity.
Each guided tour with workshop is led by IMMA’s visitor engagement team and takes place from 10am – 12noon, Tuesday – Friday.
Booking is online at the link above, at least two weeks in advance.
