An Lanntair Art Labs online

ART LABS ONLINE

Despite our face to face Art Labs being on hold we can still have lots of fun!

Art Lab tutors Robbie and Alicia will be creating weekly online sessions which will be posted here with activities based on exhibitions and events held at An Lanntair with the added bonus being, you can take part in these activities anytime that you like.

Please send in pictures and videos of your efforts so that we can share them on this site and on our social media.  Remember, don’t be shy….  share away on your own social media too and get inspiring others.

We will also be hosting short talk by artists as well as handy art hacks and hints for you to try out.  Keep your eyes peeled for fun content, exhibition opportunities and new things to try out.
