Bring your group to the gallery on level 3 and explore some of the artworks in the current exhibition using VTS; Lucy McKenna’s solo exhibition (20 Sept – 22 Oct) or SURVEYOR, a group exhibition of artists with a connection to Meath (5 Nov – 21 Dec). Guided by our learning and engagement coordinator, use VTS to discuss and build a deeper understanding of ‘what’s going on in this artwork’.

Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is an inquiry-based method of visual processing – looking, describing and discussing what we see in a work of art. It is about listening to others, responding and expanding thoughts and new possibilities revealed within group engagement. VTS improves oral and visual literacy, problem solving and collaborative interactions among peers. Suitable for all ages, VTS tours are best with groups of 5 or more.
