Visual Visit 20th Feb
Published on February 20, 2024

A trip to the Visual in Carlow on Tuesday 20th February, saw the culmination of a years hard work by the children of 3rd and 5th classes. Last year, our school was chosen to take part in a project called ‘Many Hands’. This project, in conjunction with Carlow Visual, saw us linked with an artist named Jane Fogarty. She came to the school to work with the classes and introduce them to the work of a sculptor. Each child completed a number of art projects. Jane took away their ideas and used them to create a new sculpture outside the Visual. We were invited to the unveiling last Tuesday. While there we got to see the exhibitions, including the children’s own sculptures, in the gallery. We were treated to a party also with Joe the Magician. It’s clear to see that there are many budding artists in Rathoe!!!!
