An exhibition of self-portraits by students from Scoil Raifteirí, Snugboro NS and Cornanool NS, which was part of the international Belfast Children’s Festival in May 2009. This expressive and engaging show resulted from the Linenhall’s ongoing Visual Art Programme for Schools, which introduces primary school children to contemporary visual arts through a programme of gallery talks, discussions and workshops. Inspired by Will O’Kane’s Linenhall show, in all 288 paintings were created, of which the work shown is a selection. The young artists were facilitated by the Linenhall’s Orla Henihan and artists Denise Clarke and Marianne Heemskerk.

Admission: free

Official opening on Tuesday 7th July at 3.00pm. All welcome.
