Nenagh Arts Centre is presenting a day of portrait painting and drawing in the atmospheric surrounding of the theatre on Saturday, February 8th.

The day will be split into two sessions of portrait painting, with tuition at hand from a professional tutor. This workshop is perfect for those familiar with figure painting and those who would like to try it for the first time.

The day runs from 2.30pm to 5.30pm and there will be a sitter available for those taking part. All attending should look to bring canvases, paper, paints, brushes, pencils and other painting and drawing tools as well as a support such as an easel for painting on. Admission is €25 and places are strictly limited.

Manager Brendan Maher said: “we are looking to develop more classes with an emphasis on visual arts in the centre and we hope that this portrait painting day will be of interest to a broad range of people - beginners and those more accomplished”.

Patrons can call the arts centre on 067 34400 or drop into the centre to book.

In 2006 an Iceland-based group launched the website WikiLeaks.org. Run by Australian Internet activist Julian Assange, the site regularly publishes top-secret documents and covert information, often regarding governments and their respective military operations. Wikileaks eventually went on to facilitate the largest and most damaging security breach in American history.
