Paint and Colour

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 colourful patterns by sprinkling and brushing colour pigments on a pan of oily water and then transforming this pattern to paper.

Illuminations Workshop

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.

Junior Achievement 3rd & 4th class

The children in 3rd and 4th class particpated in a Junioir Achievement programme over the past 4 weeks under the guidance of Cian McMahon. The topic of discussion was about how our city considers economic development, local businesses, and career opportunities. The children discovered that,  A city is a place where a lot of people live, work, play, and go to school. Cian helped the students build a city! They constructed paper buildings, and mapped out a city. They wrote a newspaper article and planned their own restaurants They also examined why banks are important. Well done 3rd and 4th class.
