Recycling Project

Mrs Hamill’s class have been busy making lot of art using recycled materials.

Art in Carrickleck N.S.

We love doing Art in our school.

December 2021: Pupils in the senior room used shoeboxes to create Christmas scenes.

November 2021: Pupils in the senior room have been learning all about the Vikings. They worked in groups to create project which they presented to the class.  We used cardboard to create Viking shields with fantastic designs and patterns.  IMG_20211122_123119IMG_20211118_143414IMG_20211118_143727IMG_20211122_123209

Since coming back to school in September, we have been studying some famous artists such as Picasso, Edvard Munch, Claude Monet, Paul Henry, Henri Matisse and most recently George Seurat in the senior room. We really enjoyed making St. Brigid’s crosses to celebrate St. Brigid’s Day. In the junior room we have created some beautiful owls, created a Winter Wonderland and a lovely beach scene to name but a few. We regularly enter competitions, both local and national and we have been very successful in recent years.

Here are some recent art activities in the school. We hope you like them!
