A showcase for the wonderful art, craft & design work created by the art students of Naas CBS, Co. Kildare
The 5th year art students at Naas CBS are currently taking part in a Creative Engagement project. A Creative Engagement happens when a local artist or arts group comes into the school and imparts their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to the students. This partnership has mutual benefits to both artist and school (and teacher too!) The 5th years are working with local artist Josephine Hardiman from Punchestown. Josephine is a teacher, painter & illustrator but her area of expertise is calligraphy. She has been coming in to work with the pupils every Monday during their double class since January. So far students have learned skills in using twin point pencils, calligraphy markers, quills (made from the swans at Lakelands!), calligraphy pens and watercolours. Here are a few photos of the classes to date.
