Virtual Extended Thursday Club with Artist Julie Forrester
The Thursday Club is a weekly art programme. Each session would usually consist of a focused gallery tour, time for tea and a chat, and an art-making session, with materials, supplied. The Thursday Club is currently on pause.
Whether you prefer to look and enjoy, listen or create we invite you to join the Thursday Club online. Develop your existing skills or dip into something completely new.

DRAWING WITH REGINA CARBAYO - Tone Values
Artist Regina Carbayo joins us from Spain with a bilingual video. Watch Regina at work creating a tonal study.
Regina says "Seeing values when drawing means identifying the different tones from light to dark. The tonal differences are called ‘values’. I use shading techniques in this video with graphite, pencil and an eraser. I have chosen to work from the sculpture An Strachaire Fir by Joseph Higgins as I find it to be very strong and full of expression. There is a lot of contrast which will help you to easily identify shadows and light”.

What is a Supported Studio?
A supported studio is a sustained creative environment for individuals with specific health or social needs. Supported Studios provide technical artistic support, networks and audiences outside the health and social care settings.
Karolina Poplawska and Mairead O’Callaghan work as dedicated studio facilitators. They have developed relationships of trust and deep familiarity with individual artists. Both Karolina and Mairead work to actively identify exhibition, training and development opportunities with studio participants.
Crawford Supported Studio exists through partnership with Cork City Council, CIT Crawford College of Art, Crawford Art Gallery and Cope Foundation. Most recently we have collaborated with the School of Visual Arts New York, Atypical University Belfast, Cork Printmakers and ADI Ireland.
Yvonne Condon exhibited her work in the University of Atypical Gallery, Belfast.
While the gallery is closed, Rosaleen Moore has been busy at home making drawings from her collection of postcards.
Rosaleen Moore travelled to Pure Vision Arts Studio in New York as an ambassador for Crawford Supported Studio. Flat Iron Gallery New York presented an exhibition of new work by Crawford Supported Studio artists.
Ailbhe Barrett, Brid Heffernan and John Keating participated in a series of supported printmaking sessions at Cork Printmakers.
