C.C MURALIS for Open Day 2015

Matt (from second year Printmaking) has installed a few posters on our new wall for Open Day!

National Art School Open Day is happening  Saturday the 29th of August.  It would be great if there were lots of Printmaking studio major students working in the studios on this day. We want as many students  printing so that the public and prospective students can get a real sense of the studio in action! If you’re a second year student this is a great time to print your 20×20 project!
