CULTURE NIGHT 22/9/17
Culture night held in our school theatre thanks to the generosity of our principal was a resounding success. A special word of thanks to Nancy Falvey our link to the community. We viewed a wide range of craft iniatives and were reminded of the paticipation of some former students whose amazing Art work was on show. Louise Kennedy and Laura Leahy were involved with the jewellery expo, while Cliona Crowley and Tara Kavanagh worked on the Tapestry project. A word of thanks to Mary Timmons and Ann Kiely both working Artists who are a great support to our students. We hope to continue to foster links in the future.
art tour 2017
On Tuesday 12/12/17 senior cycle Art students visited the Glucksman gallery in the grounds of UCC. The students were accompanied by their Art teacher and SNA Ms R. Lynch. We arrived at the purpose built Art gallery at 10am where we had the pleasure of being met by our tour guide. The exhibition was very topical and informative as its title was ' OUTPOSTS' and its theme was based on borders. This was a group exhibition featuring work from both Irish and international Artists including the painter Brian Maguire. The work included paintings. posters photography and sculpture. As well as examining the Art works on display students were also exposed to the elements and considerations that go into hosting an exhibition.
At the end of the tour student were encouraged to complete their worksheets and have a coffee in the gallery cafe.
