Over 100 young artists, from the Magherafelt area, came together on Monday 5th March to take part in joint art workshops facilitated by Mid Ulster District Council.
The children were welcomed by the Chair of the Council, Councillor Kim Ashton who said:
“These workshops have been a fantastic opportunity for pupils within our Magherafelt schools to come together and explore a range of different artist-led, crafts and methods. Events like this one allow the next generation of creative thinkers, to explore art work in a positive learning environment, especially for pupils who are hoping to pursue careers in the creative industries.”
This event offered Year 11 art pupils from five local schools, the opportunity to enjoy their selected art form under the expert tuition of professional artists in that field. Together pupils took part in a variety of different workshops ranging from willow weaving and pastel painting to comic book art and clay tiles.
