1ú - 26ú Bealtaine 2014

Tá an scéim seo ar siúl sna trí Ionad Lae i gceantar Mhúscraí – Ionad Lae Bhaile Mhúirne, Cois Cille Chill na Martra agus Cuan Barra Bhéal Áth’n Ghaorthaidh

“Is grupa sinn a tháinig le chéile sa bhliain 2002. B’iad Údaras na Gaeltachta a mhol go mbeadh ranganna ealaíona d’aosaigh ar fáil sa cheanntair.

Buailimíd le chéile lá sa tseachtain. Bionn saoirse againn ár abhar féin a roghnú. Dá bhrí sin, bionn réimse leathan ábhar ar siúl againn – tír dhreach, crainn, éanlaithe, ainmhithe, bláthanna, an mhuir, pórtráidí agus samhlaíocht. Bainimíd sár thaithneamh as na ranganna agus comhluadar a chéile ach go hairithe ag am an briseadh, ina mbíonn tae, buns agus caint again lena chéile. Téimíd ar thuras bliaintúil go áiteanna éagsúla. Tá cairdeas mór agus comhoibriú eadrainn go léir. Ní neart go cur le chéile.”

Is í an deac-ealaíontóir Bernadette Ní Choitir atá i mbun ranganna Tacaois a bhíonn ar siúl san Ionad Lae Bhaile Mhúirne.

Beidh an oscailt oifigiúil á dhéanamh ag John A. Murphy ar an taispeántas bliantúil seo san Ionad Cultúrtha ar an Déardaoin 1ú Bealtaine @ 7.30.

“The Tacaois Art classes for older people are held in two Day Centres in Cois Cille in Kilnamartyra and in Cuan Barra in Ballingeary. These classes facilitate 2 groups of older people, whose ages range from 65 to 85. There are up to 20 older people who have been attending these classes for the past 4 to 5 years.

The aim of the classes is to access tuition in sketching, painting and pastels, using acrylics, watercolors and oils, along with pastels and charcoal. The subject matter varies from landscape and still life to portraiture, flower painting and pastoral scenes. Each May we exhibit the year’s work in a rich and varied exhibition where the participants’ individual expression and creativity is displayed and appreciated by friends, relatives, local school children and visitors to the Ionad Cultúrtha.

The classes are very precious to us and we view them as a learning and creative experience, as well as being a happy, social, weekly occasion, where we have an opportunity to exchange experiences, share each other’s stories - both sad and happy – and chat about family and everything that is important to us. We discuss current affairs and get all the local gossip while making new friends in the process! Therefore, these Art classes are an ongoing learning and rewarding experience for us all. Most of us have taken up painting only in the past few years and had no previous experience whatsoever! The development of painting and sketching skills is astonishing and a source of great joy and satisfaction to us all.”
