‘I dream my painting and then paint my dream’. – Vincent Van Gogh

These are some of our pictures of trees.  

Before we did our project we often drew trees

that looked like lollipops 😉


We learnt about colour, shape and angle,

looking at masterpieces by a variety of artists.

These included Vincent Van Gogh

and Georgia O’Keeffe .


These are some of the trees we drew today

at the end of our project on the theme of trees.

‘I found I could say things with color and shapes

that I couldn’t say any other way

– things I had no words for’.

Georgia O’Keeffe

  1. I like the way you drew the branches and did the coloring so good with keeping in the lines. They are really good with the stary night. They just look so realistic.

  2. Great to hear from you Josh. Thank you for the compliments. We tried hard to make our pictures the best we could. Teacher tells us that we have to concentrate on our art as much as if we were doing maths. At the beginning of our school year in September, when it was time for art we thought it was time to chat. We concentrate better now and our art is better too. Music though, is our favourite subject. What is yours?

  3. Thanks so much for your audioboo that was played today twice to our students. They loved it, but they weren’t the first to do so, Mr Webb, played it in the staff room and we had a crowd of teachers that were listening to it. The Room Five students loved hearing your voices and the facts and information about where you are in Ireland. We are going to do a display about it next week that includes the information so that anyone who visits our classroom can see it, and we have alread had people from all over the world watch what are are doing.

    Next week in class we are going to speak Gaelic from the phrases and words that you left for us and we are going to look for more information and we will post it on our class page, so thank you so much again and have a great next few days. (It is the weekend here in New Zealand, we are half a day ahead of the rest of the world!)

  4. Great work guys, as always! And as always I would love to publish some, if not all of them, on my website!

  5. Thanks so much for the compliment. Please do 🙂
    The young artists would be very flattered.
    And after all it was you that got us started
    on this particular road.
