Claíocha Inis Oírr 2021 Coláiste Gobnait

Rinne scoláirí Choláiste Ghobnait staidéar ar bhallaí cloiche Inis Oírr. Chaitheamar trathnóna ag bailliú íomhanna, ag déanamh sceitseanna agus ag tógáil griangrafanna. Ansin phioc na scoláirí na híomhanna a thaitin leo agus rinne siad tarraingtí sa rang ealaíne. Bhain siad úsáid as meain meascaithe, idir peann luaidhe, dúch, uiscedhath agus peann luaidhe daite. Bhí muid ag breathnú ar structúr agus ar phatrún na mballaí, agus na tonnta álainne a bhíonn le feiceáil iontu.

The students of Coláiste Ghobnait made studies of the stone walls of Inis Oírr. We spent an afternoon collecting images through sketching and taking photographs. The students chose the images they liked best to develop into finished pieces in the art class. They used a variety of materials…..pencil, ink , watercolour and coloured pencil. We were focusing on the structure and pattern of the walls and the beautiful tonal qualities they hold.

Féile na gCloch, the festival of stones, unfurls virtually in 2021 on the 2nd October. Engage with the event whenever suits you via the Galway Heritage website. Féile na gCloch, festival of stones, is an annual event on Inis Oírr. It brings together practitioners in stone walling, stone carving and letter carving from around the world to celebrate the heritage of the stones of the Aran Islands. In 2017, a new workshop was introduced, to reflect on the role that drawing and sketching plays in each of these traditions.
