For the last year Martina Galvin has been running the art classes for children and adults in the ABCD Drumcondra Business and Arts Centre on Thursday mornings and afternoons. These have been very successful, and you can see some of the art created exhibited in the Gallery at the front of the building. The classes are restricted in numbers to facilitate a good quality art class. All the participants have made beautiful work as well as having great fun in the process. Through out the year the adults learnt the many techniques of watercolours and drawing. The work I do with the children varies from drawing and painting to clay and paper sculptures. Congratulations to them all for their great efforts.
