We learned about the artist Georges Seurat in art this week. He used a technique called pointilism, painting using dots in stead of brush strokes. We tried to paint his most famous picture, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, using only dots of paint.

We learned about the famous American artist Jackson Pollock today. He was famous for his ‘drip style’ painting. He is known as an ‘abstract expressionist’ painter. That means that his paintings don’t look like real things but instead try to express an emotion.
The 5th class children from St Molaga’s were invited to visit Balbriggan Community College. The children were split into different coloured groups on arrival. They then, with their group leader, visited the art room to make gory cuts out of paint, glue and plaster, the tech room to look at robots, the science lab to make fire and dissect a lambs heart and finally to their new amazing gymnasium to jump the high jump and climb the climbing wall.
The children got a real flavour of what secondary school in Balbriggan Community College will be like if they chose to go there.
