Thinking Visual is a programme of events designed to provide a high quality contemporary visual art experience for secondary students in the county of Wicklow. Offered by Wicklow County Arts Office, the aim is to provide students with an opportunity to explore a variety of themes and concepts while engaging in an understanding of the depth of contemporary visual arts practice through direct engagement with visual artists. Over the coming year Thinking Visual will host 8 artists workshops in local schools, 5 artists talks as well as a three month Artist in Residence in Blessington Community College.
Thinking Visual is an initiative of Wicklow County Council which is designed, co-ordinated and managed in collaboration with Mermaid Arts Centre. Further information can also be downloaded from www.mermaidartscentre.ie
