Landscape Painting

Evidenced in these Form I paintings is the  inspiration that pupils drew from the collection of National Geographic Magazines which are part of the Art Department's resources.  Some of the pupils used their own personal photos (see the image which depicts two children walking on the beach with their father).  The pupils painted on the back of an off-cut of leatherette. The paint took to the reverse of the leatherette very well and the resultant texture (both visual and tactile) of the paintings closely resembles that of a canvas painting. There will be more paintings posted tomorrow.

Every Monday some members of Form II working with  Ms. Caroline Lynch (student teacher, Hdip. ADE NCAD). At present they are designing vessels to be constructed out of clay which also take the form of an animal. The main construction technique they will be using is coiling. Posted today are some of their drawings from the design process stage of the project.

 Posted below are a couple of examples of how an animal form could be morphed into a clay vessel.

Each of the five tiles will be assembled and displayed as a unit after they are bisque and glaze fired.
