Art Club runs every Thursday for the boys and girls in 5th and 6th class. In the first week the children made Kimmy Cantrell inspired cardboard relief masks.65773438996--15ABE9F9-59FB-49F7-90D8-D2D0A337AA11 We decided to replicate his artwork and make our own relief masks using cardboard.

The boys and girls also took inspiration from Picasso’s portraits when making their own asymmetrical artworks!

Since then, the children have looked at artists such as Jackson Pollock, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Linder Sterling. IMG-1112 (1)

We have spent time making papier-mâché animals, creating self-portrait collages and the children even helped the Elf in Junior Infants decorate their classroom window in time for Christmas! What a fantastic bunch of artists!IMG-1508
