Our Creative Engagement project 2017 explored Street Art and Graffiti. We looked to the Irish contemporary street art scene for inspiration for our project, and we were fortunate to get to work with Dublin street artist and illustrator Jess Tobin aka Novice.
TY students look at Jess Tobin's art work, along with the work of artists such as Conor Harrington, Joe Caslin, and James Early. Based on this some students used the own photographic portraits in their work. Students spray painted on to large wooden panels which have been hung in our school building, these bring our students' expression and colour to our halls.
1st year Art Exhibition took place on Thursday the 19th of January in the art room at lunch time, where a number of mesmerizing mask designs were on display. Students made posters for the event that attracted people to visit the enthralling exhibition.
The Lusk Community College Art Instagram, @luskccart, that has been run by Megan Sarah last month, has been growing since November 2016. The page displays a variety of artwork, photographs and inspiring posts of the student's progress on their artistic journey. The account represents the art department of Lusk Community College which shows the artistic flair and creative capabilities of the students.
