Me and The Moon founder, David Fortune, graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from LSAD in 2006 and went on to exhibit in group and solo exhibitions in Ireland and London. He merged his studio practice with a teaching career when he graduated with a Higher Diploma in Art Education in 2011. Behind his studio practice is a unwavering commitment to freedom of expression, which carries through to the Me and The Moon philosophy of teaching.
All our workshops are process-led, which is why they help grow children's confidence and independence. Process Art is a creative journey rather than a deliverable end product. Children don't feel pressure to deliver a 'perfect' piece and are free to have fun and think for themselves. Children learn fundamental inter-disciplinary skills in; Paint, Print, Collage, 3D Construction, Clay, Textiles, Animation and Typography.
We work with teaching professionals who share our passion and commitment to creating a welcoming and happy creative space for children. Our main base is at 10 Eglinton Road, Bray. We also run workshops at Killruddery House and Gardens, Bray School Project, Greystones and Tallaght. We run parties and festival pop-up events nationwide. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss Me and The Moon at your event.
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING
Our workshops are process-driven, which means we are interested in the development of the child's imagination, creativity and confidence. We allow for creative play and 'happy accidents'. Children create work unique to themselves, rather than replicating the teacher's sample.
We surround ourselves with like-minded colleagues; Teachers, Artists and Designers with a genuine passion for what we do. We are staffed by experienced professionals, Garda vetted and insured.
