Fingal County Council in partnership with Draíocht presents In Colour — a unique exhibition and education programme aimed at Leaving Cert Art students.
The education programme aims to bring the syllabus alive by providing students and teachers the opportunity to experience focused tours of the exhibition, take part in an intensive study day, and meet three of the artists, who will discuss their work. An education resource catalogue accompanies the programme and features detailed information on selected artists featured in the exhibition. It is hoped that this resource catalogue will be both interesting and useful to all students, teachers and visitors to the show.
The idea behind the proposed design was to create something engaging and memorable for the students. Something that would catch their attention and encourage them to take part in the programme. I wanted the design to reflect the nature of the event as something fun and intriguing. I thought it would be interesting if each letter of the title In Colour helped describe the experience of taking part. The eight letters stood for: Inviting Novices – come, observe, learn, opine, understand, review.
Cards and Poster
All six cards appear together as part of a set. They are joined to one another by a perforated line. Easy to fold down—easy to detach. The reverse side of each card shows an example of each artists’ work together with additional information about the exhibition. The poster combines the letters from all six cards to form a full colored version of the stacked type that appears on the top left hand side of each card.
