Our first photos from Session 3
It’s hard to believe the summer is nearing its end! It feels like just yesterday we were picking up our first group from the airport, but here we are more than one week into our third session. We’ve been busy from the start. Our first few days were spent on some drawing exercises, learning to use manual film cameras and making our first prints in the darkroom.
We started our two day trip to Dublin at the studio of former Cow House resident artist Aoife Collins. She is currently artist in residence at IMMA (The Irish Museum of Modern Art) and was generous enough to give us an hour of her time to discuss the ideas and processes behind her work. Other highlights of our stay included an entertaining trip through the city streets with Lorcan Collins, a visit to the gold collection at the National Museum and late night gelato in Temple Bar.
Back at the studio everyone continued their hard work in the studio, but we still found time to take a walk up to Kelly’s trees, go swimming and fishing in the pond, and celebrate Paul’s birthday. Happy 17th… the photos look great on the website! Check them out here.
