About the event

Guided tour of the Classical Museum with Museum Curator, Dr Joanna Day.

Admission free, booking required.

The Classical Museum in UCD holds the largest collection of Classical antiquities on display in Ireland. The collection was started early in the twentieth century by Professor Henry Browne and has been added to through donations and loans over the past century. Artefacts include Roman and Greek coins, magnificent Greek pottery ranging from the Neolithic period to the first century BC, glass, jewellery, inscriptions and funerary sculpture, Cypriot ceramics and a small Egyptian collection. Thematic exhibitions change regularly. 

Drawing Workshop

ClassicsNow is offering a rare chance to look at this fascinating collection of artefacts up close and to respond creatively through your own artwork. 

The drawing workshop will be facilitated by multi-talented visual artist and teacher, Genevieve Harden, who is keen to invite those with little or no previous art experience. 

Paper, pencils and erasures will be provided. 

From 12 noon -1.30 pm. Booking is required and spaces are limited. Workshop fee: €15.

Genevieve Harden is a socially engaged artist. Her practice encompasses exhibitions, installation, video, painting, performance and public commissions, often in educational and community settings. Her current work explores connections and tensions between past and present, responding to letters written in 1916, through a collaborative process. She is a qualified Art and Design teacher and has a Masters in Socially Engaged Practice and Further Adult and Community Education. Questions of cultural identity and belonging to place triggered her initial investigations into marrying art and history.
