    Early Childhood Educators

    Where: Draíocht, Blanchardstown
    When:  Sunday 20th of October 2019, 10am – 4pm

    Artist Lucy Hill will introduce participating educators to ways of using contemporary artworks as a starting point for designing bespoke early years arts activities for young children that take into account the Aistear curriculum, children’s highly specific needs and likes, and the spaces available in early years settings.

    During the day Lucy will guide the group on an exploration of Estuary - an exhibition featuring some of the artworks within Fingal County Council’s Public Art Collection, to generate ideas for art activities designed for children. This will be a practical, messy and highly enjoyable day where you will collaborate with other professional early childhood educators to inspire and extend your confidence and abilities for providing arts activities for children, from early years to after school clubs.

    An exhibition celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Fingal County Council Municipal Art Collection.

    Thursday 12 September – Saturday 16 November 2019

    Fingal County Council is proud to present this major exhibition curated by Una Sealy RHA, James English RHA, Joshua Sex and Sanja Todorovic. The collection comprises of works by national and international artists, graduates, emerging artists and local artists. Over 200 artworks have been acquired since the collection began in 1994 and it has been continually evolving since with new acquisitions being added when the opportunity and resources present themselves. The collection contains a broad selection of work by artists such as Eva Rothschild, George Potter, John Kindness, Pamela Leonard, Maeve McCarthy, Patrick Scott and Mick Cullen, amongst others.


    The curators are all Fingal artists, whose art also features in the collection. They describe their process of selecting work for this exhibition as taking in the physical and natural landscape of Fingal and celebrating local and visiting artists that have arrived to the county through the collection. The official motto of Fingal County Council is Flúirse Talaimh is Mara — the abundance of land and sea which is reflected in some of the artworks featured in the exhibition.

    The Per Cent for Art Scheme allows for a percentage cost of a capital Project of a capital project to be used for the commissioning of an art project.

    In 1986 the Department of the Environment adopted this scheme and it was initially called “The Artist Embellishment Scheme” and provided the opportunity for Local Authorities to commission permanent sculptural works. Since a review of the scheme, which has since extended to all Government Department with construction budget, the scope of the artwork commissioned under the scheme has also expanded.

    Artist Stories / Patrick Scott Read more

    28.10.2013

    Born in Kilbrittan, Co Cork, in 1921, Patrick Scott has exhibited extensively both in Ireland and internationally. Patrick Scott works in a disciplined, simple yet individualistic manner. He studied architecture at University College Dublin and after graduation in 1945 worked with the architect Michael Scott. His training in architecture is reflected in his strict use of formal yet distinctive symbols. He has devoted himself fully to painting since 1960. Scott travelled extensively in China and Japan, and his interest in oriental art is evident in his work, expressed by the simplicity of geometric forms, the minimal use of colour, and a characteristic use of line. In July 2007, Scott, who is a founding member of Aosdána, was conferred with the title of Saoi, the highest honour that can be bestowed upon an Irish artist.
