BLAST: Drawing The Point

In March the fifth Year Art Students took part in the nationally funded BLAST Arts in Education project. Practicing artist, Sligo-based Kiera O”Toole, mentored the fifth years over a number of weeks preparing the project. In class she worked with the students,  discussing her own work and exploring ideas as well as going on site visits. Finally , on a sunny morning in March, Kiera, Ms Hynes and the class went to Rosses Point and used the environment there as the source for drawings which were done in chalks and pastels all around the pier area. The project really opened the students’ eyes as to what art can be and the whole experience was exhilarating.  See their work in the video below:
