R8 Trip to the National Museum of Wales
R8 pupils visited Cardiff Museum to find out about the evolution of Wales and to look at the paintings in the art gallery. Pupils enjoyed finding out about volcanoes and the creation of the Welsh landscape. In the art gallery, the pupils were very privileged to meet the mouth artist Rosaleen Moriarty-Simmonds who is a member of The Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. These are professional artists who have no use of their hands because of a disability at birth, an accident or through illness and have learned to paint by holding a brush either in their mouth or between their toes. The children were keen to find out about Rosaleen’s art and enjoyed watching her work. They shared their own pictures with her and discussed the paintings in the Impressionism Gallery by Monet with her.
