The artwork in Dwell was created by Mrs Wilson’s P4 & P5 Class from Donaghey Primary School, Co. Tyrone as part of the Virtually There online residency project. The children were inspired by artist Ann Donnelly to connect with their home area and family history through art.
Virtually There is a long–term virtual artist in residence project run by Kids’ Own and funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. The project explores the potential for creative engagement between artists working from their studio and children in the classroom through the use of video–conferencing technology.
