TY Festival 2022
Are you in Transition Year? Are you into art and art-making?
About the TY Festival
The Douglas Hyde, in collaboration with students from our TY Work Experience Project, is delighted to present our first TY Festival.
TY Festival is a day-long programme for transition year students and home-educated students from across the country (aged 15 to 18) to learn, play and explore their creativity through art-making workshops.
About the Workshops
We will be offering three different art-making workshops throughout the day (online and in-person). All the workshops were designed by students from our TY Work Experience Project and will give the participants the opportunity to engage in creative thinking through drawing, clay and painting.
The online Drawing Workshop is exclusively for students from outside Dublin, while the Clay and Painting in-person Workshops will be better suited for students that could easily travel to Dublin City centre on the day.
Online Drawing Workshop: As the workshop will be delivered exclusively online, you will need to have access to a computer and the video communication platform Zoom.
Drawing materials will be send by post prior to the workshop.
In-person Clay and Paiting Workshops: As theese workshops will be delivered at The Douglas Hyde Gallery, you will need to be able to travel into Dublin City centre on the day of the programme.
Clay and Painting materials will be provided on the day.
There are a total of 15 places for each of the three workshops. Places will be allocated randomly by a lottery system. Half of the placements will be allocated to students from DEIS schools who will also be chosen randomly.
We will send offers of places by email including your parent/guardian to let them know.
