Year 11 have been learning all about perspective as part of their Entry Level art. They used their iPads to take photographs, went outside to draw on site and looked at some work from the Tate in London. We talked about one point perspective and train tracks. They are enjoying how they can use their new skills and personally the work they have produced has been amazing!

Message From Mrs Davey
Week Beginning 4/5/2020 ‘Design your own trainer’
I have started to draw my trainer designs.
Lesson 5 Trainers. We all have a pair somewhere at home so try drawing your own or copy the outline shape of some the trainers below. Add some 'sparkle' to your designs I am going to try some too!!
Lesson 5 Trainers
As we can’t celebrate birthdays the way we used to, we have had to be a little creative. So instead of buying your cards try making them. We have missed 3 birthdays including Molly’s 2nd birthday. We put balloons out on our gate so our neighbours tooted their car horns while driving past, we made a card, we baked a cake and played with bubbles!
I would love to see some of your cards when we get back to school. I want to show you how to make a memory book so you can keep all your Lockdown drawings and school work together.
Take care everybody xxx
Birthday cards and memories
Hi everybody I hope you have enjoyed trying to make your elephants. Like us you might have birthdays to celebrate and as we can’t get everything we are used to what about making your cards?
We have made a few and another one to do today and I can show you how next lesson.
We are going to try and mail some hugs too as we can’t see all the people we are used to giving hugs to.
I miss you when you’re far away,
I’d love to see you every day,
But since I can’t come over to play,
I’m mailing you a hug today.
Miss you all and enjoy the sunny weather xxx
Lesson 4 Our Elephants
I hope you are trying a little bit of art work even some ‘doodling’ is good fun. Remember to keep them all so I can have a look at them when we get back to school.
Some of you know Julie our artist, she has been doing lots of drawing at home, some of which we at Killard inspired her to do! So go to this link and see what she is doing as she has a virtual gallery.
There is a great video and you can see Julie doing some of her artwork.
Take care and the elephants are getting finished tomorrow xxx
Lesson 4 The Walk of The Elephants
Hi everybody, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and not eaten too much chocolate! We have been busy in the garden and using items we have at home to make things. What do you think?
The Walk of the Elephants
I hope you are able to get out into a bit of sun. How are staff getting on with your Rainbows? Wouldn’t it be great when we get back to school, if we could put all our Rainbows up in a big display...I have a making lesson tomorrow that we spent this afternoon doing.
Take care Mrs Davey xxx

Miss Lowry's rainbow window
Hi everybody, hope you’re well! Here is a little art activity for you to try at home!
‘Virtually There’ at the Ulster University Art & Design campus.
Year 10 took part in a workshop organised by ‘Moonbase’, an arts organisation based in Belfast. Their clients and our young people enjoyed learning to weave while listening to singing and ‘all request Friday.’
We enjoyed the hospitality of the ‘Oh Year music centre.’ Their work will be displayed in the foyer of the ‘ Blackbox’ theatre during the Belfast Children’s Festival, please pop in if you are nearby to view.
