1916 Sackvillestreet Art Project

St Paul`s 5th year art class are taking part in an exciting art project: “1916 Sackvillestreet Art Project”. The aim of the project is to remember the 262 civilians that died during the 1916 Easter Rising. The school registered and received our civilian: Mary Brunswick. Pupils were asked to research their civilian and then make a “house” that reflected the person. Pupils were put into groups and asked to work together as a team to create a house. They were then judged by Mr. Ferry (Historical Content) and Maria Connolly (Artistic Content). A winning house was selected. This house will now become part of the Sackvillestreet Art Project!!
