Family Activities

Explore the Library with specially designed activities for 3+, 5+ and 8+.  These include, puzzles, crosswords and a colouring book. 

These worksheets are available to pick up in the second floor lobby of the Library or you can download them from HERE prior to your visit.

Also available is a Drawing Activity Booklet for adults and teens (please email info@cbl.ie for availability prior to your visit or download from HERE). This pack is designed to help you enjoy your visit and encourage you to draw at the Library. Whether you are a beginner or a confident artist, this booklet will give you advice, encouragement and helpful tips that will improve your skills as you explore the collections. There are exercises for you to do, including portraits, decoration, the types of materials you can use, line, colour, outlines, shading and perspective, all inspired by our Islamic, East Asian and European Collections.

We recommend this booklet is printed on A3 paper, double-sided and in colour.

In addition, our Creative Corner, located in the first floor lobby of the Library, gives all ages an opportunity to respond to our exhibitions through art.

Please check WHAT'S ON for details of all events.

We would like to thank the American Friends of the Arts in Ireland for its generous support of our intercultural education programme.
