Who we are?
The Studio is a cottage renovated into a studio for classes and workshops for all ages. It is a sanctuary where we encourage creativity, curiosity and community. We love to see everyone together in our space learning something new, experimenting, meeting new people and leaving with smiles on their faces.
What makes us unique?
Our Acrylic Pour Workshops are very popular across the country. Its incredible mesmerising process and gorgeous results, Acrylic Pour Art is the coolest new art form in town with advantageous therapeutic results. And the wonderful thing is anyone can do it. Loved by artists and beginners alike, it's suitable for all ages regardless of experience. Every participant will enjoy personalised guidance from us with comprehensive experience and interaction in a comfortable studio setting.
About this Project
At the Greenway Lane Art Studio, we love sharing the delight of art-making with people. As such, we want to design an art experience that doesn't limit participants in any way. This type of art is great for relaxation and art therapy which makes it the ideal choice. In order to accommodate anyone with a disability, epilepsy or otherwise and the increased demand for this we have decided to crowdfund. Disability arts is probably one of the most underrated activities undertaken by people with disabilities. We want to change that!
Due to our ongoing popularity, I am getting more enquiries as to whether there is wheelchair access or enough space. In order to accommodate this increase in demand for classes for people with disabilities, we want to expand by building a space that is completely disability friendly. We are a small studio who are fiercely committed to championing accessibility in the art community.
The project cost:
Ground Prep: €1000
Build, electric, plumbing & Fitting: €4600
Toilet facilities: €1500
Exterior • ramps, driveway and entrance €3500
Fund it Commission: (8%)
I've worked as an artist for the past 20 years and I have epilepsy, this gives me an insight into the needs and wants of individuals not only with epilepsy but also people with other drawbacks. I have had the privilege of working with Western Care in my studio for painting classes and I loved every minute, there were some people who could not participate as my studio is not wheelchair accessible. I am always awfully disappointed when I can not accommodate everyone especially when I know they are missing out. It would be wonderful to offer classes and workshops to everyone regardless of their disability.
