Frosty the Snowman

Although it is not snowing outside just yet we here in Room 10 managed to welcome our own snowman. Instead of using paintbrushes, for this art lesson, we used cotton buds to paint him. We had to dab the cotton buds carefully onto the page to create a dotted effect. We think Frosty looks great in all his wonderfully coloured hats, scarves and gloves. Have a look for yourself…

Art Exhibition: Interviews.

Three 3rd Class pupils interviewed parents at our art exhibition.

One parent said it was “absolutely brilliant” and that there were “lovely colours.” He would “highly recommend” coming to the exhibition.

Another parent thought the exhibition was “very good.” She also thought that there was “lots of colour” and she would recommend visiting the exhibition.

One parent said there was “a real variety of work” from Junior Infants to 6th class. She really liked the Modigliani portraits that 6th class made.

Some parents were asked what their favourite paintings were. One parent said he likes the ‘Mona Lisa’ because it’s “very graphic looking.” Another parent said that she doesn’t have one favourite piece of art, she said “I like all art.”

The interviewers all enjoyed going to the exhibition. They enjoyed looking at paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci and ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch. One interviewer really liked 5th Class’s Pop Art pictures and 6th Class’s Picasso paintings.
