Art Exhibition

We had a fantastic day today in the Landmark Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon. Students from four schools in Leitrim, Longford and Roscommon convened at the Grand Ballroom to exhibit their work. We learned about the process involved with producing knitted work, clay pieces and some poetry. Students from third and fourth class spoke eloquently and at length about the wonderful work that our artist-in-residence, Cróna Gallagher has helped us produce. Thank you Cróna from all in Scoil Náisiúnta Droim Lias!

Print with Cróna

Artist in residence Cróna Gallagher visited our school today and taught us about the magic of print.

Cróna brought various types of fish which students from third and fourth class used to create a printed image.

Cróna began by pinning the fish to a sheet of kitchen roll. The fish was propped with paper into position. Ink was used to carefully cover the fish. Students used a special type of expensive piece of paper from Japan to press against the painted fish. The paper contained cloth which allowed greater flexibility without tearing. The impression made by the scales of the fish was imprinted on the paper. View our gallery to see all the action.

Daidí na Nollag agus Trócaire

Chaitheamar cúpla seachtain ag déanamh Daidí na Nollag. Dhíolamar ár n-obair agus chuireamar cuig éuro mar praghas ar gach Daidí na Nollag. Bailíodh €175 agus tugadh an méid airgid seo do Trócaire. Táimid fíor-bhuíoch as ucht an tacaíocht.

We are learning about Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste this year in Scoil Náisiúnta Droim Lias.

We gathered bean tins for legs, plastic milk bottles for the feet and head, shoeboxes for the body and used old laces to tie our Santas together. We coated our structure with paper maché before painting it the famous red. We glued cotton wool to make Santa’s beard and to decorate the lapel of his jacket. We used a Cornflakes box to make his cone-shaped hat.
