6th Class Mud Roc Figures and Diormas

6h class used plaster of paris to cover pipe cleaner stick figures showing movement or action. The children painted them and then decided on a background diorama to suit their figure's particular movement.

6th Class Christmas Art

Children in 6th class enjoyed making Christmas Decorative popups. We used laminated colouring sheets, lollypop sticks and cotton wool.



Third class used Janet Ledger's "Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square" and the poem "Twas the night before Christmas" to create art in many strands of the Visual Arts Curriculum...drawing, Paint & Colour, Fabric & Fibre and Clay.

Junior Infants - Christmas Art

The Junior Infants have been very busy making lots of wonderful Christmas and Winter Arts and Crafts.



Art with Rose

Children in 3rd & 4th have begun an art project with Rose Hanley. This will be a three week project. In week 1 they got the opportunity to draw from observation and from their imagination. They got to use pencil on paper and then transfer their work to black paper using oil pastels. They then also got the opportunity to use Indian ink to create a picture inspired by their initial drawing from observation. This observation was done in the school garden where there is a lovely bed of wild flowers, that many of the children used as their inspiration.




Week 2 of the project saw great progress with children painting their pictures onto the slate after sketching the outline with chalk. They used acrylic paint and took Rose's advice to begin with the background colour and larger areas of colour and to let the finer detail until week 3.



On the third week, Rose reiterated how important it was to put in the finer detail and that paying attention to detail and taking time over the project gives a better end-product....and there were many beautiful pieces...Here is just a selection...
