Over the last weeks we have slowly been uploading all of the images and maps produced by our own local and very eminent archaeology expert Charles MacLaughlin. You’ll find lots of sites in these pages, all marked on the maps and with photos of them below. Its a wealth of material and we hope to include Charles’s maps in our master map of Glendaruel shortly (another very big project indeed!). The pages are all here:
Throughout August and September the children from Kilmodan Primary school have been creating a fantastic range of artwork in response to the Robert Stewart ceramic mural situated in the school. Inspired by Stewart’s use of natural motifs, colour, pattern and texture the children have explored new materials and techniques to produce an impressive body of work. On Friday 4 October there will be a celebration of this work in the form of a tearoom, exhibition and programmes of drawing workshops for the community to take part in.
Archie and Callum spent the afternoon producing fabulous sketches of the school from the outside for the school page. As P2s their brief was to give us an idea of what the school looks like. Their angular drawings certainly give a great idea of the mid-70s architecture!
Today the pupils of Kilmodan are going to have a session with Charles Dixon-Spain on picture research and expanding the information on the website. We’ll be defining what pictures we want and what copy is needed. Hopefully the website will be even more colourful when we finish.
