Date : Thursday 11 June 2020
Venue : Online
Time : 6PM
Learn how to create your own version of an amazing charcoal drawing from the comfort of your own home with our Tones & Techniques Workshop on Thursday 11 June at 6pm.
Join The Ireland Funds and Irish artist Miriam Innes for this fun online drawing workshop for all skill levels.
This will be a 1 hour session via Zoom on Thursday 11 June at 6pm, with an optional follow-up on the Friday.
You will follow along with Miriam as she creates the charcoal drawing and will also be able to see and hear Miriam and ask questions.
Hailing from County Mayo and now based in Brisbane, Miriam Innes is an amazingly talented Irish artist best known for her charcoal drawings and her large scale charcoal installations of hyper-realistic sprawling streetscapes. Preoccupied by the metropolis yet her choice of natural materials reflects upon her childhood spent in Ireland’s marshlands. Oscillating between two worlds – the natural and built environment – she likens the organic qualities of her medium, charcoal, to the ‘bog oak’ found close to her home. Its simplicity, Innes asserts, renders it overlooked and understated, a notion echoed in her choice of mono-tone palette, yet her cityscapes loom large and are rich in their complexity.
