The Scream by Edvard Munch recreated by the Art Academy Artists

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.

The entrance is across the road from the post office / St Clare’s School in Harold’s Cross. Enter through the main gates of Our Lady’s Hospice on the Harold’s Cross Road and proceed for 200 meters, the Research and Education Centre is on your right passed the carpark. Parking is free.

Sighting of a Pride of Lions in Harold’s Cross, Dublin

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

Before teaching at Art Academy this morning, I had a lovely morning of yoga with Sarah Shannon Yoga . You’ll see if you scroll down to the end of the post, that now Sarah Shannon Yoga seems to have some competitors who have copied her business model. 😄

They are planning a website for this venture at #Coderdojo
