The annual end of year Art show by the PLC students of Ennistymon Vocational School is opening this Thursday April 21st at 7pm. The exhibition will be running until April 28th in the Courthouse Gallery Ennistymon, and will be open everyday from 12-4 except Sunday.
The exhibition is a culmination of the students’ years work. The title and theme of the exhibition is 'Leap' which represents the many ways the students looked at their art this year.The collection demonstrates the self expression and skills development of the course participants and this is clearly seen in the variety and exploration of media and subject matter, culminating in an artistic ‘leap’ of discovery towards new horizons, and the sharing of ideas and inspiration. Ceramics, sculpture, textiles, painting and drawing unite to make an eclectic, bold and exciting body of work reflecting the breadth of the course.The QQI/FETAC Level 5 and 6 Art course in Ennistymon are full time one year courses running from September to May each year. They are open to anyone who has an interest in, and wishes to expand their knowledge and skills in art. The course is always well subscribed and appeals to both mature students and school leavers who wish to explore their creativity or embark on art as a career.The recent move of the group to the old Blue Frog Cafe building has afforded the group greater creative space and is a real asset for future groups. If you are interested in joining the group this September contact Ennistymon Vocational School on 065 7071375 http://www.artroomennistymonvs.blogspot.com/
