Conference 2013 - Still life with Fruit

The 8th Annual Art Teachers' Conference came to end on Saturday 21st of September. The conference was a great success. We sat 155 people for lunch on Saturday afternoon. It was a fantastic turnout, a little more than we had anticipated. It's great to see so many Art Teachers supporting the Association. I have to acknowledge all the hard work put in by our National Committee, Cork Branch and all the teachers that gave a hand on the day.

It is with great regret that we must share the sad news of the death of Dr Kieran Meaghar, Course Leader, Art and Design Education, Limerick School of Art and Design. A leading figure in Art Education in Ireland, his influence will long live on in our art rooms across the country. We extend our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. May he rest in peace.
