Quay Arts has more than nine years experience, delivering a range of creative classes and workshops for all age groups, working with professional artists from all disciplines.

We are now offering In-School Oil Painting workshops for Transition Year students.  The workshops are delivered by a professional artist and an art coordinator.   Students learn pallet-knife technique and learn the basics of using oil paints.  The workshop commences with exercises, and all students then work on an individual piece. 

Students are introduced to an art medium not normally included in the school curriculum and the workshop is delivered in a relaxed enjoyable way.  Participants get immediate results with oil paint due to the quality of colour and flexibility of the oil paint.

Workshops are two hours in duration, delivered in school.  

The Transition Year class absolutely were inspired to create some beautiful art works. No matter their artist ability, they were encouraged to use the techniques learned during the class and to be creative in their masterpieces. Pictures of the students work to follow so keep an eye on the Gallery and more will be posted on twitter @stannescck.

If you are interested in any further information, or to book a workshop, please contact Rosaleen on 087 2077431 or by email at rosaleenrainford@gmail.com

TY YSI Project raising awareness with a colours day

On Thursday November 14th last as part of Stand Up Week students in St. Anne’s wore colours to raise awareness about LGBTI+ Bullying, Homophobia, Transphobia, etc. and raised funds for Pieta House.

The sum of €682.60 was raised and this is just one element of the Transition Year Young Social Innovators Project on Inclusivity that the students are undertaking this year.

In the coming weeks they will take part in the Pieta House #Feelgood Campaign and hold a movie night and also will focus on the 16 Days campaign to create awareness around violence against women.

Across the curriculum in school the students want to promote the message that there is a place in their school and in their community for everyone.

In January the TY students will attend the Cycle Against Suicide Students Leaders Congress in the City-West Convention Centre and take part in workshops on Anti-Bullying, Body Image, Self Care etc.

To reach out to the community the students have formed a partnership with the local Family Resource Centre and hope to campaign for more services for young people in the locality.
