Draw Along with Laureate na nÓg

The Arts Council and Laureate na nÓg, Áine Ní Ghlinn in partnership with Children’s Books Ireland present a very special online Draw Along event for Culture Night, Friday 17 September.

Online, Bilingual Irish/English language event, with subtitles. 


Please note that the video will be available to view on this page from 9am on Friday September 17 and will remain live until 9pm on Sunday September 19

Beidh Áine Ní Ghlinn, Laureate na nÓg á chur i láthair agus í ag léamh sleachta as a scéal Boscadán agus beidh an maisitheoir Tarsila Krüse ag tarraingt na bpictiúr.  Beidh Draw Along oiriúnach do pháistí ó na Naíonáin Bheaga suas chomh fada le Rang 4 (Aoisghrúpa 4-10).

Reading from her story Boscadán, Áine will be joined by illustrator Tarsila Krüse who will draw along while children can listen to the story and design their own robot. Boscadán is an Irish language novel for children about Aoife who builds a cardboard robot. When the robot takes on a life of its own, that’s when the real fun starts!

The video can be used in the classroom on Culture Night and at home, and will be available for 72 hours from Friday morning 17 September until Sunday evening September 19. All you need is paper and a pen. Colours optional but encouraged!

Suitable for primary school children.
