Light Grey Art Camp International: Ireland Culture Tour
June 22nd - 27th, 2016
The Light Grey Art Lab team just returned from our newest creative endeavor, Art Camp International, as we traveled with a small team of artists through the countryside of Ireland! We stepped back in time exploring castles, abbeys, cathedrals, and structures dating back hundreds of years. During our trip, we had the chance to explore both the ancient relics and old time traditions as well as the contemporary cultures, cities, food and live music!
The Art Camp International program is a unique travel opportunity that allows artists to explore, engage, and grow alongside a group of creatives. During this year's trip, we were able to visit tiny fishing towns such as Waterford, Cork, and Cobh as well as Kilkenny, Limerick, Galway, and more. The team hiked through some of Ireland's natural wonders, such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Saltee Islands, and sketched puffin havens, local flora and fauna, limestone fields, and other geological landmarks.
We had an incredible time exploring Ireland and making some new friends! Photographs, documentation, and details about future programming is coming soon! If you would like to join us for the Ireland Culture Tour next year, send us a note: firstname.lastname@example.org
2016 Artists Include: Maike Plenzke, Niky Motekallem, Jesse Riggle, Sarah Airriess, Manuel Kilger, Yoshi Yoshitani, Philippe Poirier, and Romain Mennetrier led by Light Grey Art Lab's Jenny Bookler and Chris Hajny.
