P6/7 workshop with Irish Artist Brian Ballard

Our P3-P7 children have been studying the works of renowned Northern Irish artist Brian Ballard over the last few months. Each child has created a painting from one of his collection and these are beautifully displayed throughout the school.
Our P/7 children will be attending a special workshop in the Roe Valley Arts and Culture Centre on Tuedsay 14th April 2015. They will experience a fantastic opportunity to be taught the skills of ‘portrait drawing’ by Brian Ballard himself.

An exhibition of his life works over the last 50 years are on display at present in the RVACC.
