On Thursday the 7th of February, Ms. Murphy’s 5th Class made the journey from our school to the Luan Gallery to visit Eoin Butler’s exhibition ‘Now and Then, Here & There’.The children had the opportunity to receive a guided tour of Eoin Butler’s work, which included plain air landscapes and portraits. His work pays particular attention to their place in history. The children used clipboards and activity sheets provided by the Luan Gallery to view and analyse the art; this encouraged their acknowledgment and appreciation of all aspects of the works
, from the early sketches of ideas and themes, to the finished pieces. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and we are looking forward to returning to the gallery in the near future!
