Curious Creatures Frans Post and Brazil Exhibition at the National Art Gallery

 
 
 

The 6th class pupils took part in workshops recently at the National Art Gallery. These workshops involved drawing and painting workshops based on a wonderful exhibition that is presently taking place in the gallery.

The exhibition displayed work by Frans Post, a 17th Dutch artist who travelled to Brazil and spent 7 years painting “curious creatures”, animals and wildlife never seen by a European person before, never mind a Dutch person! The children got to draw these creatures themselves in the style of Frans Post assisted by the wonderful staff at the gallery.
