Ballinglen Arts Centre


Ballinglen Arts.


On Wednesday, the 3rd of November, 5th and 6th class went to the arts centre in Ballycastle. It was called Ballinglen Arts. We had a great day!


We left the school at 9:20am. It took us about 40 minutes to get there. It didn’t seem that long though because the bus driver put a DVD on for us. It was called Mall Cop.


When we got there we did some printing with the photos we’d brought with us. First we etched them, then painted over them with very thick, blue and black ink. We cleaned the photos then put printed them onto special paper by putting them through a big machine. The first one I did didn’t come out as I had wanted it to so a woman called Catherine helped me do another one with the same picture. The second one came out much better!


After the printing we had our lunch. Then we played outside in a little garden at the back of the centre. We played catch and had great fun but the grass was very wet and slippy.


We then went to see a man called Kim who was working in his studio. He showed us his paintings and how he mixed the paints together. His painting were very good. It was very interesting!!


Finally it was time to go home. We had a great day and had lovely art to take home with us. I would love to go there again soon!
