ART CLASS: Portrait Painting from Photographs
November 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm| Free
Saturday 17 November, 11am – 4pm
In 2014, the museum began its commemoration of the Great War with an exhibition on Lieutenant-Colonel George H. Morris (1872-1914) from Spiddal, which included a posthumous portrait of Morris by William Orpen. To mark the centenary anniversary of the armistice, the museum is hosting a one-day intermediate-level portrait painting course with artist Caitlyn Rooke (www.caitlynrooke.com). Strictly limited to 10 free places, interested parties must email a short submission to the museum stating why they should be considered (firstname.lastname@example.org). All materials provided.
As part of the Decade of Commemorations programme, this event has received funding from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht through Galway City Council.
