The Junior Room were busy learning about sound and how air moves to create different notes. Lots of fun was had designing and making shakers to bring home.
Excitement is brewing as our talented Art Committee continues to breathe new life into the shelter at Cloonlyon NS through their mesmerising mural project. Over the past few weeks, our dedicated artists have been hard at work, transforming the once blank canvas into a vibrant tapestry of Irish culture and heritage.
From Blank Canvas to Blank Slate: The journey began with the meticulous preparation of the shelter walls, as the Art Committee cleared out clutter and applied a pristine base coat of white. With the canvas primed and ready, the stage was set for creativity to flourish.
Sketches of Saints and Swashbucklers: This week, our talented artists have begun to breathe life into the mural with their intricate sketches. Two iconic Irish saints have emerged on the walls, their serene visages capturing the essence of Ireland's spiritual heritage. Additionally, a legendary female Irish pirate has made her mark, adding a dash of adventure and intrigue to the scene.
Can You Guess the Names?: As we unveil these captivating characters, we invite you to guess the names of the Irish saints and the famous female pirate. Their stories are woven into the fabric of Irish history and mythology, and their presence on our shelter mural pays homage to their enduring legacy.
More to Come: But the journey doesn't end here! Our Art Committee has ambitious plans to populate the mural with even more characters from Irish mythology, each adding their own unique flavour to the tapestry of our shelter. So stay tuned for more updates as our mural continues to evolve and enchant.
Unlocking the Magic: As the mural takes shape, we invite you to follow along on our artistic journey and witness the transformation of our shelter into a vibrant celebration of Irish culture and heritage. Together, let's embrace the beauty and wonder of art as we weave new stories and memories within the walls of Cloonlyon NS.
