Art Exhibition

Well done to our second years and Ms.Walsh, Art Teacher held a “My Spaces” Portraits Exhibition in South Tipp Arts Centre.  This project is based around the pupils “safe” and “happy” places. The pupils had to decide where they feel most comfortable and safe. An area that is most important to them where they can go if they are stressed, worried or anxious. It is important to find these areas for ourselves so we can go there to help relieve our stress and worry and feel comforted and safe. The recognition of these spaces is important for these second-year pupils so as they grow within their school years, they can feel secure in a certain space. They have worked really hard at deciding where these “safe” space is for them. The pupils were also inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s painting technique through using a lot of colour, palette knives and heavy acrylic paint to express colour and texture in their final piece.

Congratulations to Ms.Walsh & Second year students on their excellent work.
