News Update from The Art Hand…

We’re back in full swing with a variety of creative activities for all ages from kids art classes and performance to film editing and stained glass.

Kids; Looking forward to welcoming all our young students who start back next week with an exciting new term of Art Classes. Each Tuesday @ 4pm is for kids aged 4 to 7 and each Thursday @ 4pm is for kids aged 8 to 12. Full details HERE.

Words; The WORDS writers group performing @ The Art Hand held its first event of 2014 this week. The audience was captivated by some outstanding performers including Karen Power, Matty Tamen, Belle Walsh, Pat Galvin, Mary Power and Bernadette McCann. We also witnessed some live performances via Skype from Luck Library in Wisconsin USA and from Roisin Power Hackett in Spain. The next event is the first Wednesday of February (the 5th). Full details of the event and the Zine are HERE.

Zine; Don’t forget that The Words Zine is now quarterly and there is an addition to the submission guidelines; Something you heard at one of the WORDS event that you think should be included in the next Words Zine? Please let us know. Also send in your own submissions as normal. Deadline is Friday February 7th for the next issue. Email to

Storm Christine; Now, we’re not all work and no play…We took the day off on Monday last and Keith Fitzgerald and Sean Corcoran spent the day recording Storm Christine. Unpredictable waves and a huge salt laden wind. Check out our YouTube video of ‘Storm Christine on The Copper Coast’ filmed in locations such as Stage Cove, Bunmahon Head, Tankardstown, Bunmahon Beach and Boatstrand Harbour. Click HERE to see it.

Learn how to professionally edit your own footage on this 2 day Film Editing Course with Anthony Kelly using Adobe Premiere.

Stained Glass Course; This is 3 Day Intensive Weekend Course at The Art Hand where you will learn how to design and make your very own Stained Glass panel, A3 in size. You will draw a template, cut out the glass and join it together with lead in the traditional way.
