Vera Klute, Hennessy Portrait Prize winner (2015), explores portraiture through a variety of means in her own practice, including painting, animation, sculpture and drawing. The workshop will include a visit to the portraiture room in the RHA Annual Exhibition, which has been a feature of the exhibition for 188 years. An introduction to Vera’s multidisciplinary practice, including her own pieces in the exhibition. Followed by a workshop where the young people will create their own self-portrait.
Participants will be encouraged to consider how they would like to represent themselves, thinking about pose, content, composition and media. The workshop, although structured, will provide a range of materials, supporting the young people to develop their own unique style of self-portraiture including the use of mobile phones, drawing, sculpture and painting.
Where students do wish to use photography or video, we ask that they bring their own mobile phone for the workshop.
Places are limited for this workshop.
This workshop is part of and supported by the citywide Cruinniú na nÓg children’s festival, which presents a full day of creative events for children and young people on Saturday 23rd June.
Location- Bewleys Cafe Theatre, Grafton Street
Description- Ayla Nereo’s voice is a beacon of light that hits straight to the heart. Her poetry splashes like dazzling paint across a canvas of sound, and armed with an array of loop-pedals, she builds layer upon layer of vocal melodies into fierce, sweeping harmonies, weaving syncopated threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her songs call us to listen deeper. For the depth of each song is in the words; her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery ring as anthems, riddles, and mantras for hope, humanness, profound healing, and love. With an uncanny ability to disarm and crack open the emotions, Ayla is an artist you feel is singing directly from her Soul, for what she truly believes in, and for the beauty of life itself.
Raised on Bob Dylan, opera, and classical music, Ayla’s music touches both the timeless and modern. Vocally and lyrically often compared to Joni Mitchell, her arrangements and stage presence lean into something more modern and fierce, an authenticity and innocence closer to Aurora or Imogen Heap. Dancing her own songs on stage as she sings them, her movement and presence gives the audience a permission to be wild, real, vulnerable, and alive. Though Ayla’s vocal melodies, timeless lyrics, and fingerpicking guitar songs harken back to an earlier era, she always rides the line between genres, weaving in live vocal looping, beats and percussion, orchestral string arrangements, celtic melodies, and even dashes of hip-hop wordplay, so that her songwriting and sound ultimately cannot be compared to anyone else.
Every performance Ayla gives is its own inspired journey; an enchanting and poignant experience that holds you by the heart and doesn’t let go.
