  • Pirates

    Created 2013-02-01 by Michael Ray

    Location: Bandon Co Cork - Co. Cork

    Duration: 2013-02-01 to 2013-03-01

Project Outline

The project aimed to show the class of 27 11yr old boys  how a themed creative idea (Pirates) could be developed through a number of different art-making processes and skills, moving from discussion and decision making through consensus to generating images by mono-printing onto glass with primary colours using direct drawing techniques and stencilling. We then mapped the ideas generated working on a large paper roll the width of the classroom developing a visual story by splitting the class into five groups, each taking on the responsibility for different sections of the story. Each section was then transferred into clay, a plaster mould was taken and the mould filled with coloured glass. Five glass panels were produced.
