Ancora Imparo “I am Still Learning” It was in his 87th year that the great Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo uttered these words – an ancient testament to the modern idea of lifelong learning. Art being the greatest adventure of them all.
I got to teach some incredible artists this week between the ages of 6-14 years old. I am so proud of them. They put huge efforts into recreating the Edvard Munch masterpiece The Scream over the mid-term break.
Huge congratulations to: Emily. Marianne, Hannah, Catherine, Giulia, Marco, Emilia, Tadgh, oisín, cillian, seóna, ciarán, cornelia, penelope, and seán. Very well done guys.
These midterm master pieces are really coming together at Art Academy. Great job guys.
Brilliant arty Mid-term underway. 🎃👻#TheScream #Masterpieces #EdvardMunch

We are off to a very colourful start here at this week’s Art Academy Summer Camp as we welcome 12 promising artist’s to their week of Rosa Bonheur painting. Stay tuned to see their work progess. I am very excited to see what these guys can do as so far, I’m impressed with their work ethic and colour mixing skill.
Phew, it’s just a bunch of 7 and 8 year olds making their block-ins, ahead of creating their Mastercopies of 19th Century realism art. The painting’s are starting to look so real you would be forgiven for thinking these were real lions.
The artists are studying the work of world famous artist Rosa Bonheur. Rosa Bonheur
was a french artist and her largest and most famous work can be seen in New York’s wonderful Met Museum
. We do however have one of her paintings here in Ireland, a beautiful painting of a stag (the animal not the pre-wedding weekend away): https://www.theartstory.org/artist-bonheur-rosa-life-and-legacy.htm
