Hi kids ,

I hope you are all well . Last week we covered the artist Vincent van Gogh . I am so looking forward to viewing the wonderful masterpieces you have created .Whenever you get the chance please e mail them in to

art@stbrigids.net

I am very busy trying to generate ideas for the St, Brigids annual art exhibition and I really need your help with this. We will certainly be using the exhibition to help process our feelings about this pandemic. I would really like it if you e forward me some photographs or writing on what you are doing during lock down. Please take the photographs yourself and you can get help forwarding them to the below e mail address.

This lock down will hopefully relax in the coming weeks so I think its important to take a moment and document what the covid 19 virus and/or lock down means for you . What do you miss most … friends ,school, cinema , hugs from granny, weekends away ? Are you sick of washing your hands , social distancing , staying at home . Or maybe you are enjoying the whole lock down and don’t want to come out of it . Are you relaxing at home or enjoying , baking , cooking , gardening . ?¬† Is there anyone¬† you would like to be in isolation with? Please send me some photos or some written work/words even to help me with our exhibition preparations .Its down to you now to help me curate the show…. all ideas gladly welcomed!!!!

I am going to post a link here to an artist Frida Kahlo who was Mexican and was bed ridden as a result of a tram accident. She used this time to draw and paint and became one of the worlds most famous female artists. …a very inspiring person. Please look at the short films
