Rathdowney Summer Arts Programme

Rathdowney Summer Arts Programme

The Summer Arts Programme 2017 has drawn to a close with an amazing three days of drama at the Youth Café in Rathdowney.  Two separate groups of young people enjoyed the experience of learning news skill in acting and performing.  Drama teacher Mirjana Rendulic was delighted with the outcome of the workshops and remarked on how well all the young people progressed as it was the first time for most of them to take part in  any type of drama event.   A special thanks to Linda Hayes for giving her time and assistance to help make this event such a success.

  The aim is to develop a community Youth Theatre programme in the Rathdowney area.  Fins Pottery Tuition also worked their magic in the MDA, in Mountmellick the previous week as two groups of enthusiastic young people were inspired to create some fantastic work with clay.  Up to forty young people took part.    That same week Stradbally Arthouse was full of colour and creativity as artist Caroline Conway worked with a group young people on a 3 day printing and design workshop.  Lots of colourful designs and prints were brought home at the end of the course.
