Ulster Festival of Art & Design
hello all drawers and frustrated drawers...!! Lots of great things on offer next week at Belfast's festival of Art & Design, all wonderful opportunities to meet and listen to great artists of our time.
I appreciate that some of them are during the day time, but if you (or your creative family member) are at school, and studying art (or even teaching art) these events are a fantastic creative-experience-booster and worthy of seeking time out..
Wed 11th March - 11am Oil painting demonstration and talk by award winning illustrator PJ Lynch
Wed 11th March - 6pm - 7pm Talk by Katherine Tyrrell about her book on Drawing, and how to take your on-line presence from blogging to book publishing. Katherine write the UK's no 3 art blog Making A Mark and her talk will include ways to use the internet to your creative advantage.
Thursday 12th - 11 am, a panel of artists (including PJ Lynch, Set & Costume designer David Craig and Michael John Angel, founder of the Angel Academy of Art in Florence), will each talk aout their work and join in an open discussion together with the audience. This will be full of vareity and show the broad range of options within the creative field, as well as lively and fun.
Thursday 12th - 7pm, a talk by Michael John Angel, founder of the Angel Academy of art, Florence. John lively and passionate speaker, and is coming all the way from Florence to share his experience with us!! http://www.ulsterfestival.com/michael-john-angel.html
