Abstract Christmas Art
Ms Brogan completed a Visual Arts module with Rang 5 & 6 in December 2019 inspired by the artists Vassily Kandinsky and Romero Britto. We explored Kandinsky’s philosophy of art and learnt about his interest in colour theory and how his work was influenced by his belief that colours represent and portray feelings. After discussing and investigating his famous work Concentric Circles, the boys and girls in Rang 5 & 6 decorated their own abstract Christmas trees using warm and cool colours When complete, we created one large Christmas Tree using all our individual trees. The result was an amazing and a very eye-catching display in our School Art Gallery. The second part of our project was inspired by the artist Romero Britto. Each individual tree was divided into triangular segments and decorated using warm and cool coloured patterns, including a monochromatic pattern. Each pupil rose to the creative challenge magnificently. THe photos don’t do justice to the intricate patterns. Finally, we critically evaluated our creations and the children were justifiably proud of their creative endeavours. Bainigí sult as na pictiúirí.
