Found this 😁 Jeff @ AIT recently

 Jeff @ Athlone IT 🇨🇮 every now and again I find a picture on my phone that for whatever reason I missed posting first time around. Here's one from the college at Athlone recently....I'm so sorry that I can't properly credit it's artist ( if you know who it is please let me know and I'll edit it in) but it's fantastic. Pleasure working with you. 😁⭐

Love this by caseyannart (Instagram) from AIT 🇨🇮👏👏👏

Jeff & Debbie @ Athlone IT last week. Love this by caseyannart ( amazingly with her weaker hand !) 👏👏👏


One more day @ AIT 🇨🇮 !

Great ! 

We have just found out that we are both back @ Athlone IT tomorrow for an on line Zoom session with year 4. 

We thought we had finished this year but are really pleased to have one more session with everyone. This is a lovely piece taken from one of their earlier Zoom sessions at the AIT.

Last few from us both @ AIT 🇨🇮 last week

 Last few of Debbie & Jeff @ AIT 🇨🇮 last week. More of the impressive work from year 3. It was all about weight - the ones of Debbie up on the stool resting her foot on me were for 20 minutes and the tugging one was for 10 ( I think). These have been a great group to work much talent, so much enthusiasm, so much refreshing hope for the future....if you scroll through you can see that commitment to art with one of the students taking a rather precarious draw with her left hand as her right hand was in a bandage !  thanks everyone - we loved it ❤️🎨
