2nd Class Art inspired by Artist Christopher Niewman

2nd Class Art inspired by Artist Christopher Niewman

Harry brought us in a great book by the artist Christopher Niewman. He uses everyday objects to create his art. We decided to make drawings inspired by his work. When we finished working with our own objects, we swapped and made other drawings using new objects. We photographed and printed our work when we were finished.

On Tuesday, 2nd Class attended ‘Music in the Classroom’ in the National Concert Hall. It was a fantastic experience to see the National Symphony Orchestra. The children watched ballet dancers on the stage and were delighted to see the stories, ‘Peter and the Wolf’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ acted out through music. They also sang a number of songs along with the orchestra. It was a great day out!
