The CBS Roscommon Art Department kickstarted the year with a trip to an exhibition in the newly renovated Art Centre. All Transition Year students are getting the opportunity to sample art as part of their TY year.
Students were lucky enough to commence the programme with a visit to see a wonderful group exhibition in the Art Centre. The work on display was all created by the group WAR – Working Artists Roscommon – and contained a number of very inspiring and unusual pieces. Students will now be making their own artwork inspired by the visit. Many thanks to Ms Lorna Kincaid for her work in organising this trip.
The Art Department have also started working with a local artist, Flynn Keane as part of an artist-in-residence scheme funded by Creative Ireland. He will be working with Transition Year students and Edmund Rice centre students across a number of projects, incorporating a wide range of media. We look forward to seeing the fruits of their efforts in the coming weeks and months. Many thanks to Creative Ireland for sponsoring this scheme.
