Art students display work

Talented artists from Loreto College Swords working on projects ranging from potter to calligraphy to dress design, displayed their wares at a recent art exhibition at the school.

There was a huge variety of work on display on the night, from clay 3D pieces and calligraphy, to lino prints and Junk Kouture designs.

Two of these designs had been on show at the Junk Kouture Eastern Regional Finals in the Helix in March.

A number of former students of the school who are now studying Art at third level also exhibited their work on the night, providing great inspiration for the current art students at the school. Students led the way on the night, with opening speeches delivered by fifth year students, Lynsey Kelly and Kathryn Broni and volunteer students were on hand to help and guide the many guests in attendance.

Art teacher, Niamh Lacey said: 'As always, there was a great crowd there to admire the excellent work on display, and to congratulate the students on their achievements. Two students who were given special recognition on the night were sixth years Aoife Kearns and Lucy Daly who had designed the invitations to the exhibition.'

Principal, Peter MacNamara congratulated the art students who worked hard all year under the guidance of teachers, Ann O'Loughlin and Niamh Lacey.
