Science week

As part of Science Week the Science department here at the college are running a science/art competition. They simply request pupils to produce a piece of art which is inspired by science.

 Art and science are very closely linked. This is exemplified in the work of Leonardo Da Vinci who moved between art and science throughout his working life.Posted below are some examples of how artists have already interpreted science as art. 

Pupil work for this competition will be posted by the end of this week.

Creative Embroidery

Over the next few days SCC Art will be posting the completed creative embroideries made by members of Form II.  Lots of different materials were used to make the embroideries including fabric, wool, thread, wood, beads, plastic, cardboard, and in one case as you will see in tomorrow's post, a pair of socks! Fabric dyes were used to help achieve specific colours, paint and pens were also utilised to help create detail. Various textures were reproduced using techniques such as beading,  ruching and layering fabric and stuffing the fabric with wadding. For some pupils this was their first encounter with sewing but as is evidenced in their work they proved to be quite capable!

Waves, Surfing & Horses

This photograph published on the front of today's Irish Times is reminiscent of a SCC Art post from last year.  Check out the post from last November which discusses the famous Guinness Ad. alongside a painting by Daphne Wright.

Form VI continues to practice life drawing. Today they worked on gesture and contour drawings. The objective of these short studies is to capture the gesture of the figure. By carefully studying the model, to the point were pupils must not even look at the page upon which they draw, pupils are forced to render what they see  therefore reproducing the gesture that the figure is making.
