Project Description

In 2021/22 I completed a TAP Teacher Artist Partnership with Scoil Chriost Rí, Ennis.

This was a Teacher Artist Partnership under Clare Education Centre, Co Clare. I was partnered with 1st/2nd class of Scoil Chríost Rí National School, Ennis. We chose the theme of self portraiture and went on an amazing journey together looking at portraits made by well known artists and experimenting ourselves with different mediums. We made self portraits in the abstract expressionist style and also made portraits inspired by Frida Kahlo. We ended up by making life size portraits of ourselves by working together to trace our bodies onto paper and then painting them, cutting them out and sticking them onto cardboard. These and the other portraits were displayed in the school Halla as part of creative schools day.
