    Fox, Bird, River, Sing! An audio adventure for families of all ages & all abilities.

    Premiere: RTE Jnr 11.55 am and 4.55 pm Saturday 12th June 2021

    (Excerpt) 'Where the land meets the salty water you stand, barefoot.  The sea laps upon your feet and in-between your toes. It’s dawn and the birds are wakening the land and as you lift your eyes, you see the sun peep over the blue horizon. It all looks mysterious today. You curl your hands to your eyes to make magic binoculars and as you scan the horizon you see appearing far away, where the sky meets the sea, a red fur-bodied, big-eared, white-chested creature sitting proudly on a floating log, the wise Red Fox'

    This radio play is a whole family audio adventure that transports listeners from the sea to the singing forest on an epic, interactive, musical journey of dancing and singing, frolics with curious creatures and fantastic fun for the whole family. You decide where the venue is; the comfort of your own sitting room, garden or forest. Turn on your imagination, tune in the radio or download the audio link and travel through rich soundscapes and beautiful music in the world of Fox, Bird, River, Sing!

    Let's Explore the artwork of John Kindness.

    Fingal Arts Office recently Celebrated 25 Years of Collecting Art! Over the next few days we will share an artwork from this amazing collection with you and invite you to respond with your own masterpieces.Ideal for all ages and abilities, you might like to focus on developing your drawing or painting skills by recreating the artwork you see, or you might prefer to focus on a small detail to get started and then let your imagination run wild to create your very own original piece in response. The choice is yours! All we ask is that you share your finished artwork for us all to see and enjoy. This way we stay together and connected through art.

    Let’s begin with Irish Artist John Kindness. This print is called, ‘Charles Coote’, made in 1998, using two plate etching, aquatint & drypoint. Artists explore their subject matter in detail and carefully consider their composition. Look closely, what can you see? Explore the focal character and his garments, look at the background drapes, what else can you find?  Look around your home and find objects to draw.  Maybe someone at home would like to volunteer to be the subject matter of your artwork! Using whatever and whoever you can find, make your very own artwork inspired by John Kindness’ print.

    Today we are delighted to share ‘Soup & Bread’ by Irish Artist Catherine Barron. It was made in 2013 using acrylic ink on sheet metal.  Artists use lots of different techniques and materials for creating their artwork. What do you think about the materials used to make this work, look at its shape? Can you look around your home and find interesting materials to draw or paint directly on to? Catherine once said that ‘windows frame a particular place, time and way of life. They are the eyes of a home’. Using your window look outside and capture the shapes, colours or objects you see. In Catherine’s piece she is looking from the outside in. Look around your home for materials to draw, colour and paint with; magazines & fabric cuttings for great for collage, what else can you find? Using your materials create an artwork in response to Catherine’s piece.

Susan is a botanical artist and has studied plants and their habitats for many years. What kind of plants can you find at home and in your surrounding environment? You might find a houseplant, an outdoor shrub, a wild flower. You might even find a plant in your fridge! Whatever you discover, study the detail, the colour, the shape, the texture. What does it smell like? How does it feel? Using your senses - sight, smell, sound, touch, what other information can you gather? Then create your own artwork in response to Susan’s painting using any materials you can find at home and share it with friends, family and Fingal County Council.

    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.

    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.
