The fourth and fifth class of Kilmurry National School are painting a mural on the outside wall in the playground area with artist Shona McGillivery. Shona will be working with us every Tuesday for the next six weeks.
The theme of our mural is Irish wildlife. On the 30 of April this week we started some light sketching on Flora and Fauna. These are plans for our painting on the outside wall. In a few weeks time we will be starting our painting. We will keep you updated on our project every week.

On the fourteenth of May, Shona came in again to work with fourth and fifth on our mural. We had to sketch a few animals on the wall. After we sketched the animals we proceeded painting them.
Shona brought in lots of paints and paint brushes of various sizes and we got to pick out a few paints and a paint brush each to use. We put two people at each animal and together we mixed paints and painted the animals on the wall. Shona will be coming in to help us with our mural every Tuesday for the next 3 weeks. We will update you on our mural again next Tuesday. You can see some pictures of the work we have done so far on our website.
