Partnership Forum for project
Hello my name is Caoimhin O' Doherty I am in year 9.I was chosen to be in the rivers of the world project becausem I had one of the 4 highest grades in my class, I am 13 years old. So far we have met the Artist Darra and a teacher in your school, also I have worked on a plaster and clay model that shows a symbol of Derry. My model was a picture of fish and the site of the buildings in the distance. We've been told that next month we will colour the models using a quite an amazing method. We had to collect images of the Foyle and draw 4 images of something in Derry too, although it is definitley a good idea for our school I am finding it very enjoyable working with dara and getting out of class, doing fun activities and drawing pictures. I would like to know what you are doing in England and what you are making over there, bye.
River’s Project. River Foyle. Hello, my name is Eoin McElhinney 9A and I am part of the St Columb's College team on the rivers project. First we went to Ebrington to get told what we would be doing over the next two years on this project. On that day we found out who our artist was going to be and what we would be doing the project on. We were told that our artists name was Darra and that we would be working around the River Foyle and coming up with ideas about a resourceful river. After about a week our artist, Darra, came to our school and we began to make our little clay tablets and put our own designs and drawings on them. We then had to make clay walls to put around our tablets so that the plaster didn’t pour out of the sides. We have painted them and now have them finished it was great fun.
hello , my name is daniel roddy,i live in derry very close to the river foyle. I was chosen to go to "the rivers of the world project". We have done a drawing so far and we have made the drawing into a plaster cast. We coated it black and polished red and gold onto it. It looks well so far. we are working with an artist called Dara for help. He is relly good. My picture is off st.columb in foresty place. It is looking good so far. It was hard coating it over because sometimes you have to lean heavy and sometimes you have to lean relly light. We have also collected images of the river foyle and st.columb to help us. We have also been offered to go fishing and canoeing. Ir has been relly fun so far. We have also went to a meeting about the rivers project, we were told a lot of information there. Where are you from? What have yo done so far? talk to you soon. bye.
Hello, my name is Disha and I'm a student in year 9. I was also chosen to be in the Rivers of the World Project, I enjoyed the workshop. The first day, we went to Central London to see where our work would be displayed, we also did alot of sight-seeing and later went on a boat trip. The second day, we met two artists who helped us in our project. The first thing we did was to make bricks with different types of spices and herbs. We also drew a few parts of ropes on a normal paper, we traced on lino and the next we made a lino print by spreading ink on top. We also made different types of fruits and vegetables out of plasticine. The artists took pictures of our work and used to finish the project off. Please reply saying what different methods you used to colour your models.
Thank you, bye.

Hello, I am Liam Bradley and I am participating in the Rivers of the World project. So far we have visited the Ebrington Barracks in the waterside and we talked about the project and we met our artist Dara. In school we got out of class a lot to make our tablets. We got a lot of help from Dara. Mine is has an oak tree on it which represents Derry. To make our tablets, we carved in our picture then we poured plaster into the mould. It came out well and we painted them black with gold on top. I am enjoying a lot because we get out of class a lot and we do lots of fun activities

Hello, my name is Caomhan McConnell and I am a member of the Rivers Of The World project with St. Columbs College. In the last couple of lessons with the artist, Dara. In them, we were making models of thumbnail drawings that we did. Mine was canoeists in the Foyle. The artist is quite helpful and is very civil. I like the project because there are cool stuff to do while out of class.
