Arts and Science Project- Cavan County Council

4th class have been chosen to participate in an Arts and Science Project, in conjunction with University College Dublin and Cavan County Council. Only five schools were chosen from County Cavan, so we had to enter a competition in October, and we won! As part of this project, we will be working with scientists from UCD later in the year, at Cavan Burren Park. Firstly we will be taking part in workshops with Cavan artists, who will come to our school to do art and poetry workshops.

The first workshop took place on November 16th. Heather Brett, poet, and Marilyn Gaffney, visual artist, came to our classroom. They introduced the project to 4th class. Marilyn worked with us on plant, bark and rock rubbings in crayon and paint. Heather did a poetry workshop based on the weather this morning, where we all worked together on a poem. They will be coming back to us in two weeks. We can't wait!
