In February, Carbury National School responded to the Punc 1×1 artworks on loan to their school from the Niland Collection. They produced their own artistic interpretations of the Niland Collection paintings through a series of interactive workshops as part of the Punc artist in schools initiative, a new strand to this years programme.
They examined intriguing aspects of the paintings, which were on display in their school recently. While the artist was at their school the students explored paintings of the ever-changing Irish landscape and experimented with perspective drawing.
Their wonderful creativity prompted a whole range of suggested names for the painting that was on display in their school. Below are some of their unique and creative suggestions for what the title could be:
Valley of Hills
Clouds Over Country
From the Top of the Hill
A Land of Peace
Storm on the Blue Mountains
Since visiting the school the 3rd class children continued to engage Niland Collection by visiting The Model for a guided gallery tour of our exhibition Turbulence.
Artist Shannon Re will continue to visit each of the seven participating schools from now to the end of May. If your school is interested in workshops with the artist please phone The Model on 071 914 1405
