As part of Solstice Arts Centre’s Learning and Participation programme a number of workshops are available to primary schools connecting with their current and upcoming visual art exhibitions. The following workshops are aimed at Junior Infants to First Class and are free, however booking is essential.


Thursday 7th & Friday 8th March 2024
9:30am & 11am (60 mins)

Mapping the gallery spaces together through movement and drawing, let’s explore the artworks on display by artist Mark Garry as part of his exhibition to hold or to be held. Delicately constructed by hand, Mark’s work awakens the senses, arranging objects that cross the space and form relationships to each other. Using the four interconnected themes of Aistear: well-being; identity and belonging; communicating; exploring and thinking, create with paper and pastel to make a large collaborative piece of art. This workshop will also draw on cross-curricular links to colour, shape, and construction while extending children’s learning with visual and verbal stimulation.

Fri 26 Apr 2024
9:30am & 11am (60 mins)

Where do shadows go? Why do they disappear? In this playful workshop, primary level pupils will explore light and time, creating imaginary scenes that will only remain in our memory. Or will they? Can we capture shadows, hold them and revisit them again?
Inspired by the artworks in our gallery created by artist Willie Doherty as part of his exhibition Remnant, we will combine reality with the imagined. Connecting through light, drawing and story, we will embrace elements of belonging and collaboration, unfolding possibilities through creative fun and making the imagined visible.
