The Art Hand have teamed up with ReCreate to offer a brand new range of art classes for kids using Creative Reuse, starting on January 27th. Based in Dublin, ReCreate is a national social enterprise that re-distributes surplus stock from businesses for creative activities in schools and art groups around the country. With this vast range of materials at our disposal we plan to create all kinds of wonderful 3D Sculpture including Lanterns, Dragons, Masks, Hats and Sun-Catchers. The classes will be run by artists Sean and Miranda Corcoran at The Art Hand.
Sean had the following to say; “We are delighted to announce this new partnership agreement with Recreate which will make it possible for us to offer exciting new opportunities at our Art School. Plans are already underway to set up Teacher Training workshops specially designed for recycled materials too.”
Miranda had the following to say; “The ReCreate warehouse in Dublin is a treasure trove of possibilities, we can’t wait to get started. We’re delighted to be able to bring these truly unique workshops to our students. We’re very excited about the potential of this project.”
Classes for 4 to 7 year olds will take place on Tuesdays from 4pm to 5.30pm starting on January 27th. Classes for 8 to 12 year olds will take place on Thursdays from 4pm to 5.30pm starting on January 29th. The 8 week terms costs €80 per child. The cost for two or more children from the same family is €70 each.
