Landscapes in Irish Art

https://www.nationalgallery.ie/site...ols-national-gallery-of-ireland.pdf Added: 26 Feb 2020 Contributor: National Gallery of Ireland Resource type: Lesson Plan / Tool / Primary Source / Activity

Shaping Ireland: Landscapes in Irish Art (13 April – 7 July 2019) was an exhibition exploring the relationship between people and the natural world. The show included the work of fifty artists, spanning 250 years, depicting views and environments from across the whole of the island of Ireland. This rich collection of historic and contemporary work provides the ideal stimulus for creative cross-curricular lesson plans devised by teacher Sinéad Hall.
This resource is designed to be used in the classroom, and takes key works from the exhibition as the starting point for imaginative workshops incorporating Geography, History, Science, Art and English. Looking and responding questions for each artwork underpin every lesson, and enable students to develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills. Lessons explore themes and environments from Boglands to the Shannon Hydroelectric Scheme. Activities include growing plants from seed, writing a ‘day in the life’ of someone living in a Norman castle, and constructing a diorama. Each lesson includes a wealth of suggested follow-on activities and online resources, and the pack demonstrates how art and creativity can be embedded across the primary curriculum.
We want this resource to be used in classrooms across the country, taking the exhibition beyond the Gallery walls and continuing to inspire teachers and students after the show is packed away.
The themes explored are timely, relevant and interconnected and will provide students with a deeper understanding of the past, present and future of Irish landscapes.

What is a Portrait?

https://www.nationalgallery.ie/site...rait%20Resource%20for%20Schools.pdf Added: 26 Feb 2020 Contributor: National Gallery of Ireland Resource type: Guide/notes / Tool / Primary Source / Worksheet / Activity

People and portraits are at the heart of the Gallery’s collection. This schools resource has been designed as both an introduction to portraiture and an in-depth exploration of key works in the National Portrait Collection. Primary and Post-Primary teachers can use it as a starting point for tailored lesson plans and all activities are adaptable for different ages and abilities. Looking and responding questions underpin the resource and enable students to develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills. Each portrait is accompanied by suggested activities that allow for creative practical exploration of the work and encourage students to further develop their understanding of the diversity of portraiture.
In 2019 we launched the Zurich Young Portrait Prize, an inclusive art competition for children and young people, up to the age of 18, of all abilities, from across the island of Ireland. We hope this resource will provide inspiration and ideas for your students to enter the Prize.
