Roscommon Arts Centre is inviting children and young people to be part of a new exhibition of work which will hang in the windows and on the doors of the arts centre on Circular Road this June.
“This Is Me” is an invitation to Roscommon children to simply draw a picture of your very own and unique self to be included in a window based exhibition alongside those of other young people at Roscommon Arts Centre, which can be viewed by the public as they pass by our doors. To inspire you, Roscommon artist Sian Cosstello has developed this tutorial, which we released as part of National Drawing Day and you can watch it here:
The exhibition is part of “Cruinniú na nÓg” , a national day which celebrates youthful creativity in Ireland. Part of the Creative Ireland programme, “Cruinniú na nÓg” takes place on Saturday 13th June.
