James Barry Exhibition Centre, CIT Bishopstown Campus

A very original and colourful exhibition of thematic art work by 1st and 3rd Year Early Childhood Care and Education students opened on Tueday 5 May at  the James Barry Exhibition Centre. The exhibition features costumes and a storyboard related to Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach.

The aim of the exhibition is to showcase the students' work, expressed in 2 and 3 dimensional forms, using a variety of techniques. These include printmaking, painting, paper weaving, collage and papier–mache. The students have acquired these skills in Art and Design, over the past 3 years, in their  Early Childhood Care and Education (Art) course. The first year students' display, illustrates skills on Costume Design. Colour-coding and the manipulation of various fabrics, form the core of the costume display.

The exhibition is the culmination of  both groups Art-Module work, under the direction of their tutor Evelyn Rainy Egan.
