Harry Clarke Virtual Art Workshop

Third class recently had the opportunity to participate in a virtual workshop with the Hugh Lane Gallery exploring the work “The Eve of St. Agnes” by Harry Clarke. The artist Megan Scott provided a very interesting introduction to the work of Harry Clarke. The Gallery sent us sketch pads where we used Harry Clarke’s stained glass window “The Eve of St. Agnes” to inspire our own sketches. Meghan then taught us the technique of sgraffito to create our very own stained glass windows.

Liesbeth and Mr. O’Flynn joined Ryan in studio to talk about her recent visit to St. Joseph’s BNS Terenure to speak to the students.
