The pupils of Castlelyons have been embracing Autumn over the past number of weeks. All the classes have used a variety of art materials to create beautiful autumnal masterpieces.
This post showcases the works of our artists in junior infants, senior infants, Rang 1 and Rang 2.
“Every child is an artist” Pablo Picasso
Junior Infants and Le Cheile have been very busy. Junior infants created beautiful Autumn trees, the pupils used a variety of paints to reflect the change of season. The trees are proudly displayed around the classroom. Le Cheile made squirrels complete with orange, red and yellow painted tails. Hedgehogs can be found hiding in the back of the Junior Infant classroom, they are very special hedgehogs because the hedgehogs have gold glitter spikes.
Senior Infants created a fantastic Autumn display in the classroom. Pupils painted white plates with the colours that inspire them during this season. The plates are a great representation of the Autumn colours that surround the school. Pupils brought in leaves and other items to present below the display,bringing some of the outdoors into the senior infant classroom.
Rang 1 used warm autumn paints to create autumn print art. The pupils first sponge painted a large white sheet in either yellow, red or orange. Next, using materials such as bottle tops, the pupils dipped the materials in black paint and used a print method to create different vehicles.
Rang 2 too inspiration from the works of Pablo Picasso. The pupils created line drawings from the world around them. The pupils focused on autumn scenes, which feature pumpkins and autumn dancing autumn leaves falling from trees.
