First art session with Foróige Sligo

In the first practical session delivered by artist Andy Parsons, as part of our collaboration with Foróige Sligo, the young participants explored a range of media and techniques to begin playing with ideas and getting inspiration for artworks that will explore themes of wellbeing and mental health.

At the start of the session, Andy introduced them to some striking graphic artwork and poster art to show how very simple imagery and lettering, and cost-effective techniques can be used to produce powerful artwork that speaks volumes!
