Creative Well - Naas

The Creative Well offers free art workshops and inspiration in Naas

Have you ever been curious about art? Would you like the opportunity to try drawing, painting or printmaking? The Creative Well Programme is now calling for new applicants. This September The Creative Well will offer free, friendly, daytime workshops in Naas where you can try creative arts activities. All adults are welcome to attend including complete beginners.

Starting Tuesday the 23rd of September, this is a twelve week programme. Workshops will run once a week and are delivered by professional trained artists in a supportive and non-pressurised environment. We aim to make the workshops a relaxed place to be where you will find friendly faces, art materials and a cuppa.

During workshops you can learn or improve your art skills and develop your creativity. This programme will introduce drawing, painting, printmaking, clay work and three dimensional studies. You can then work with materials of your choice to develop your own creative project with the support of tutors.

The Creative Well programme commenced in September 2011. Previous participants have remarked on how participation in this programme has added interest to their lives and also helped them to explore their own creativity. As one said, “the course was fantastic, it’s like I have found a way to express myself.” A participant in Naas commented “Every week I just lived for the workshop and looked forward to meeting the other participants…we also learned from each other and learned to appreciate each other’s abilities.”

Participation is free of charge but by application. The closing date for applications is Thursday 4th of September. If you are interested you can download an application form from www.kildare.ie/artsservice or email: carolanncourtney@kwaras.ie or telephone: 0831709589
