Ealaín/Art – Clay Construction
The class has been exploring the coiling technique le cré (clay) to make a beehive. The children really enjoyed this project. They also learnt how to score a bee to attach it onto the hive.
The class then put white paint on the cré (chuir siad dath bán ar an gcré) to give it a base coat.
After exploring colour mixing (meascadh dathanna) and getting the right shade for the beehive colour and the bee’s wings, the children tackled the painting over a few days, applying many coats.
The last job was to cover the whole piece in PVA glue to give it a clear shiny finish!
