Before the Easter break, 6th class paid the Hugh Lane Gallery a visit.
The class took time to examine the artwork and made fantastic sketches of their favourite pieces to discuss. There were lots of interesting conversations about art.
We also studied the beautiful stained glass window artwork to replicate during our own art lesson. The children took inspiration from the work of Harry Clake and added their own ideas to their work.
The children have also been learning about Irish history and the class found lots of paintings depicting famous figures such as Micheal Collins.
It was a fantastic trip with our creative 6th class students!
