Room 13 Art Project

Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) – our very own…

ROOM 13!

This year, in Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we are delighted to welcome our Artist in Residence, Orla Kelly. Orla will be working with every class to create our very own art studio, a space in which all of us, pupils, teachers and parents, can work and make great art. This is part of an international project known as Room 13. Each Room 13 studio facilitates the work of young artists alongside a professional adult Artist in Residence, providing an exchange of ideas, skills and experience across the ages.

 

In Room 13, pupils are encouraged to take the lead, be creative and to think for themselves. So far, every class, from Junior Infants to 6th, has enjoyed very creative art sessions with Orla. Ms Toomey’s 5th Class had the opportunity to visit Orla’s studio in Draíocht as well as Francis Bacon’s studio in The Hugh Lane Gallery in Parnell Square. This class is working tremendously hard to change an ordinary classroom into an extraordinary space that we will use as our studio.
