Highlanes Gallery in Laurence Street, Drogheda.
An online painting workshop led by artist Claire Halpin and broadcast by Highlanes Gallery last Friday, proved to be very popular.
So the gallery is inviting children, or parents to book into their Eventbrite page to receive the workshop video on Thursday.
This week, facilitator Julie Duhy looks at Andrew Vickery’s paint on paperwork which is influenced by a memory of visiting the Prado in Madrid and the influential painting Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez.

“After the workshop, we would love you to email your children’s works, or indeed if you’re a teenager or adult, your own work made in response to the session” said a gallery spokesperson.
“Thoughts, reflections, and suggestions, too, can be sent back to us, and we will make some Facebook albums with the artwork.
“Please remember to send the child’s name, age, and if the artwork has a title, too. And the same if it’s a teenager/adult artwork.
“We look forward to seeing you soon at the gallery, but are delighted to connect with you safely, this way, for the moment.
“From all the team at Highlanes Gallery, take care and stay safe.”
