Lighthouses

The children in the senior room have been busy mixing science with art as part of science week – creating an electric circuit and using this circuit as part of a working lighthouse model.

 

Pointillism

As part of our International Dot Day celebrations we explored Pointillism. This is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism.

 

 

International Dot Day

Sunday the 15th of September is International Dot Day. The inspiration behind International Dot Day is the children’s book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds which encourages students to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration. In the build up to Dot Day the children in Togher N.S. engage in many artistic activities – dedicated to getting the children to fearlessly make their mark on the world!
