This Must Be the Place – For Making (Shared Open Studio)
The Creative Well Shared Open Studio is an inclusive space for adults interested in visual art. Operating from the McKenna Gallery in Riverbank Arts Centre.
At the weekly Shared Open Studio sessions, participants are supported to follow their own creative journey by engaging in the visual art activities that interest them most and working in what ever experimental ways they wish. An experienced facilitator is on hand to offer encouragement and even show you new skills.
Attending the Open Studio are previous art workshop participants, people new to the creative well project and artists seeking a shared and supportive environment for their practice. Complete beginners, practising artist or those in the middle. Perhaps you are just interested in visual arts and need a place to be, to create and to meet other artists in the county. We invite you to book a session in the studio. We cater for people of all abilities and mobilities!
This is an open and ongoing visual arts project that allows all participants to attend when their schedule allows.
Come along for a taster session and meet the faciltators Dominic Thorpe and Emma Finucane to see what its all about.
