This year St Patricks Boy’s School in Castlebar have been focusing on drawing as part of the Arts Council – Creative Ireland – Creative Schools Project.
We have had several artists visit the school to deliver workshops, most of which were completed before school closures. Artists Betty Gannon, Eleanor Curtain and Bryan Gerard Duffy delivered drawing animation, drawing construction, drawing skills and mapping workshops. The boys have also been engaged in a variety of drawing tasks since working from home.
For Cruinniú na nÓg, the 13th of June, we will design and launch a website linked to the school website showing a gallery of all the children’s drawings and animation films.
We will celebrate the launch of the website as the grand finale of our Creative Schools Project for Cruinniú na nÓg. We hope that this website will provide the children, their families and wider community an opportunity to virtually come together to celebrate the great creative work they have done while in school and at home during school closures.
