Exploring New Mediums
The Art and Movement Group
11th June 2022
The Art and Movement Group formed over 3 years ago and are comprised of 7 young artists aged between 9 and 18 who live in Mayo and are all members of Down Syndrome Mayo. This is a collaborative project between Down Syndrome Mayo, hosted by Ballina Arts Centre and facilitated by artist Alice Dixon.
The group will create new work together over a six week period. Over the month of April into May the group will meet once a week in person in the workshop space of Ballina Arts Centre. Where they will focus on new methods and medium not explored before. Mainly focusing on the process of printmaking, looking at monoprints and etching to develop a new body of work of individual pieces created by the young people.
The techniques and mediums will be tailored to suit the needs of each young artist. This work will be created entirely by the hands of the young artist’s guided by artist Alice Dixon. The final pieces will be exhibited in Ballina Arts Centre on 11th June.
