As we remember the centenary of the Easter Rising 1916, the pupils can see first hand how art captured the events of that period in our history. With emphasis on the historical paintings of Jack Yeats and others, but also exploring the links between art, literature, poetry and the political thought of the time. Many of the leaders of the rebellion were educated in the arts. We hope to create a space for the children to discover the ideology of the time expressed through art, and to encourage expression of their own ideology through art and literature.
