Little Big Studio #2: Being Creative and Inspired at Home

13 June 2020

For Cruinniú na nÓg 2020, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios presents an online art workshop for children and young people with studio artist Liliane Puthod.

Join visual artist Liliane Puthod to see what happens in an artist studio and how you can create in your own studio space. Spending time in the studio is made up of lots of different moments. Learn how an artist uses this time to experiment with ideas and materials. See the different actions and decisions that can be made in the process of play, making and experimenting.

The artist will show you how she gets ideas from what she sees in her house and neighbourhood. In her pop-up home studio, you will see how to experiment with clay and paint, taking inspiration from something in the artist’s kitchen! You will see how to develop ideas on your own or in collaboration with your family. You will also learn how to make your own modelling clay.

Have fun and enjoy creating ideas and experiments in your own home studio or ‘fun’ laboratory!
