ATAI conference September 2019

Declan was invited by the ATAI to give an oil pastel portrait workshop in assocation with Specialist Crafts, educational art supplier.

In the two-hour workshop, Declan demonstrated to ATAI members the best ways and techniques to use water-soluble oil pastels, which in turn they can implement in their classroom.

‘Declan recently facilitated a workshop at the Art Teachers’ Association of Ireland (ATAI) National Conference 2019. Our members were absolutely delighted with what they learned from Declan and we were thrilled to see the beautiful oil pastel portraits they produced during his workshop. Highly recommended!’
