VISUAL ART: NYTDC Art Show
Wednesday 6th July, 2022 - 09:30 - Monday 15th August, 2022 - 14:00Admission Free
Riverbank Arts Centre is delighted to welcome Newbridge Youth Training & Development Centre to our Foyer Gallery with their end of year Art Exhibition.
“As art is currently taught in education, it leaves a lot to be desired. It is stringent, uninspiring, yet demanding.
The students of NYTDC have been given free reign of a variety of materials, to create and explore outside of standardised testing.
Whatever materials interested them was fair game, no holds barred.
The evidence of this approach is apparent in the students themselves, in their eyes as they problem solve, in their hands as they manipulate the paint, in their smiles as their artwork is hung up.
They made this for themselves; and that’s all that matters.” Nathan O Coileain, NYTDC
