I'm getting in touch about a poster competition the Glucksman art museum in University College Cork is running for Cruinniu na nOg - http://www.glucksman.org/exhibitions/younglight.
Young Light invites young people to design posters that celebrate their community and surroundings. As we head out of lockdown and begin to reacquaint ourselves with our local area, we can see things in a new light, colours become more vibrant, people and places can hold more significance.
Across the country young people will create artworks that celebrate their local area, capturing the colours and light of your part of the country or the people and places that make it unique.
The Glucksman are providing video tutorials and live online art sessions to help you with creations as well as tips and ideas on our social media channels.
The Glucksman will share everyone's creations in a dedicated online gallery, as well as awarding prizes for individuals and schools in different age categories.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday 25 June.
Live workshops (FREE) are running on the Glucksman's Facebook page, visit https://www.facebook.com/TheGlucksman/
Tuesday 9th June 11am – Art Nouveau style posters
Thursday 11th June 11am – Punk style posters
Saturday 13th June 11am – American Kitsch style
We would love to see entries from students of your school!
