Art – TY Creative Engagement Project

Last month our TY students had the opportunity to engage with an artist, as part of their Creative Engagement project which the art department were awarded funding for. The students got to create their own self portraits with artist, Declan O’Meara. They did a workshop over two days, where they learned new techniques and how to use a new media in art making. The results were these beautiful, colourful and imaginative self portraits. Well done TY’s and a big thank you to artist Declan O’Meara and Creative Engagement for such a wonderful opportunity.
