Botticelli’s Birth of Venus Masterpieces by Week 1 Easter Camp Artists.

Congratulations to Ruth, Sarah, Oisín, Ava, Karl, Olaf, Seán, Lucy, Isobel, Aoileann, Nicola and Róise on completion of their Botticelli Birth of Venus masterpieces today at Art Academy art camp. They have done a wonderful job spending their Easter holidays creating beautiful art, learning new skills and making friends.

The original painting by Botticelli was created over 500 years ago and you can go to visit it in Florence Italy in the Uffizi Galleries. Take a look at their website here.

Some Renaissance art books for children we took at look at this week are: Botticelli by Mike Venezia and Rennaisance published by Usbourne

These can be borrowed from Rathmines Library 

The art sticker book we used was bought from the shop at the gorgeous National Gallery of Ireland.  

Art Academy wishes everyone a very happy Easter. Tomorrow is the final day of camp for the 6-9 yo artists and we are looking forward to art camp for the 9-14 yo next week.
