Join art teacher and artist Áine Andrews for a series of colourful and interesting presentations on works of art. Each week she will explore the rich and fascinating background of a well known individual piece from an art gallery in Ireland or Europe and bring it to life with stories about the subject, the artist, and the times they lived in.

“Beginning with the plaster casts in the Crawford Gallery Cork, our art journeys of discovery over eight weeks will take us back and forth through time and place.

We will look at Caravaggio’s controversial life story, his paintings and his followers in Rome and visit Monet’s beautiful water garden at Giverny where we will meet his second wife Alice Hochedé and her children.

We will see Notre Dame in Paris and learn about the rebuilding of other soaring Gothic cathedrals after previous devastating fires.

We will reflect at war memorials in Belgium and be home before Christmas to enjoy images of the Virgin and child and the stories they tell us of the artists who created them.”

Áine taught art at Coláiste Choilm for many years and is the author of Appreciating Art published by Gill Education. She gives talks and presentations on art history to students and teachers in many venues around the country.
