Carriglea Art Exhibition

On Monday, 14th May, Ard Scoil na nDéise hosted the annual Carriglea Art Exhibition. This is a very important event in our school calendar and marks the culmination of a year of hard work on the part of our art teacher Mary Foley, our Transition Year students and of course the Carriglea service users!

Our partnership with Carriglea has been operating since 2003. Each week, for a double class period, ten of the Carriglea service users come to the Ard Scoil for an art class facilitated by our Transition Year students. A huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes to plan and prepare lessons that will appeal to the interests of the participants in the classes. While Ms. Foley coordinates the classes and oversees the work, it is the responsibility of the Transition Year students themselves to plan the lesson and to work with the participants to produce the finished art pieces. Lessons incorporate a wide variety of skills including painting, drawing and collage. The finished pieces of art are a collaboration of Carriglea talent and Ard Scoil talent!

It was noted at the exhibition that even though the initiative has been running since 2003, every exhibition is as different and unique as the students and participants involved. We are immensely proud of our students for all of the hard work that they put in this year and of course we are very grateful to Ms. Foley for her boundless energy and enthusiasm for the project. Above all though we are so proud to be involved in this wonderful initiative that brings such joy to our school every Monday. The Carriglea service users bring such happiness with them when they arrive and they are always ready to throw themselves into whatever task is presented to them. Our cooperation with Carriglea provides social interaction, breaks down barriers in terms of communication, and empowers our students and the participants to integrate in a safe and caring environment. We are already looking forward to starting again in September and we hope that this cooperation will continue for many years to come.
