A wonderful free workshop aimed at children ages 8-12 years old inviting participants to discover how simple shapes can create complex characters. Places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.



We are delighted to welcome 6 graduates for Ballyfermot College of Futher Education to Art Source 2016. They are recent graduates of the Fibre Art, Illustration and Animation faculties of the college. These are the future stars of the Irish Art scene so we are delighted to offer them this opportunity to exhibit their work at Ireland’s largest Art Fair. We hope it allows them to gain some valuable experience which will help them to make a successful career from their artistic talents and skills that they have worked so hard to refine and develop with the help of Ballyfermot College of Further Education.

A unique opportunity for visitors to Art Source 2016


We have asked each of the artists at Art Source 2016 to create one original piece of artwork that they will sell at Art Source for just €100. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to Art Source to acquire a specially commissioned piece of art from some of Ireland’s best known and most talented artists for an extremely affordable price.

As each participating artist will only have one piece available for €100 there is a limited number of these artworks available, and when they’re gone, they’re gone! So make sure to come early to Art Source 2016 and see if you can snap one up!
