Clay Art-High Crosses

27th May 2021

Third class created High Crosses in art following a unit from their Grow in Love, Celtic Christianity.

A product of the Irish monastic community, it can be agreed that the creation of the crosses was a colossal undertaking and even after a thousand years, they cannot fail to impress. The 250 or so monuments that still survive on the Irish landscape today hold a special significance and to many, have become an emblem of Celtic identity. They act as a constant reminder of our unique artistic past and of Ireland’s outstanding contribution to art, architecture and education.

Third class really enjoyed this hands on art lesson and their final pieces speak for themselves! well done!!
