An artist in residence at Creative Spark in Dundalk has given a local class of school children a crash course in print design.

Wexford artist Mary-Claire Kehoe developed a new screen-print and monoprint work in Creative Spark Print Studio and has recently delivered a workshop to pupils from St. Joseph’s National School, Dundalk.

Mary Claire is Creative Spark's current artist-in-residence on the Creative Spark Residency Programme.

She has been based in Creative Spark from July to September 2016. Creative Spark are “delighted” to have Mary-Claire at Creative centre for arts.

This residency programme has been generously supported by Louth Local Authorities Art Service as a means of supporting the development of visual artists in the region.

Mary-Claire Kehoe is a professional printmaker based in Gorey, County Wexford.

Having obtained a BA Hons in Fine Art Printmaking in the Limerick School of Art & Design in 2005, she then completed her Masters in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art, University of the Arts London, 2007.

Mary Claire has been busy developing a new series of work for the Creative Spark Residency Programme exhibition at An Táin Arts Centre opening 28th Sept.

We are delighted to have continued support for this residency programme and will welcome more artists in October for the 2016/7 programme.
