Primary Postcards Exhibition 2012

This year Lismore Castle Arts invited enthusiastic Primary School students to take part in Primary Postcards 2012. The programme was designed with the intention of encouraging artistic talent and a passion for the visual arts within younger generations.

Participants were invited to visit Lismore Castle Arts for a preview of the vibrant “Artifice 2012” exhibition featuring works from Transition Year students from across County Waterford. From here the children enjoyed a series of artists’ presentations, workshops and school visits from LCA’s education team. The result of this project accumulated in the realisation of 200 personalized postcards inspired by what they had seen and learnt.

On 20th October, 90 finalists have been selected to showcase their works in Lismore Castle Arts as part of the Finalist Awards Night. Music, media and much more are to be expected between 5-6pm and all are invited to join. The exhibition will be opened by Margaret Organ, Arts Officer Waterford County Council. Congratulations once again to all the talented finalists.

The artists exhibiting in this year’s show represent Glenbeg National School (Dungarvan), Scoil Gharbháin (Dungarvan), Scoil Naomh Seosamh (Dungarvan), Villierstown National School (Cappoquin), Scoil Náisiúnta Naomh Caitriona (Conna), Liosmore Mochuda (Lismore).

Tricks and treats at Lismore Heritage Centre’s Halloween Camp

Did you know that Dracula wears dentures? That you can lift a cup with a balloon? And turn a lollipop into a spider? We’ll have these tricks and treats and much, much more at Lismore Heritage Centre’s Halloween Camp this mid-term break. There will be floating ghost busters, horsemen looking for their heads and costume drama amid more art, crafts and hair raising games.

Halloween Camp will be on from Tuesday 30th October until Friday 2nd November, from 10am to 2pm each day. Campers need to bring a healthy packed lunch and a drink. Old clothes are best as there will be lots of gross and gruesome goings-on!

Campers must be booked in as places are limited; for bookings and enquiries please call Arlene on 058-54975, email or find Lismore Heritage Centre on Facebook.

Halloween Antics at Lismore Heritage Centre

Watch out, watch out the bogeyman’s about! All little ghosts, ghouls, phantoms and spectres are invited to Lismore Heritage Centre for 4 days of devilish Halloween fun! Disgusting disguises, alarming eats, grotesque games and blood curdling crafts await them at our annual Halloween Camp.

Halloween Camp at the Heritage Centre runs from Tuesday 30th October to Friday 2nd November from 10am-2pm each day. Camp is suitable for primary school children. One day at camp costs €15 or €50 for the 4 day week.

Campers will need to bring along a packed lunch and a drink to keep their strength up and with all the blood and guts (well paint, markers and glue) about they would be best off not wearing their good clothes.

Places at camp are strictly limited and booking is essential. Please call Arlene on 058-54975 or email to reserve your place- it would be a fright to miss out!
