5th and 6th class explored the art of Marbling this week in school and we think they did a fabulous job.Marbling is the art of creating colorful patterns by sprinkling and brushing color pigments on a pan of oily water and then transforming this pattern to paper.
Ms Sweetmans class participated in a creative art and design workshop which introduced students to concepts such as colour, form and composition through exploration of glass artefacts on display in the What’s in Store? exhibition at Collins Barracks. The workshop encouraged critical thinking and creative responses. 5th and 6th class developed their artistic skills and aesthetic awareness while they designed and made their own translucent panels.
Ms. Sweetman’s 5th and 6th class had a wonderful time at Collins Barracks today. The children have been focusing on WW2 in class and had the oppurtunity today to explore and hear about the stories of the Irish at War.
