Photograph Liam Burke/Press 22THE Studio Classroom exhibition, currently on show in the main lobby at Mary Immaculate College, features work produced by children at three local primary schools through an innovative new project.The schools, St Mary’s Primary School, Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School and Presentation Primary School, worked with MIC and three artists in a scheme that aims to bridge the field of art education and the world of contemporary art.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Working with Anne-Marie Morrin of the Visual Arts Education at MIC, the TED Project delivered a pilot six-week art initiative with three artists; Jean Cleary, Julie Brazil and Kate McElroy; working closely with the schools and children through online residencies.Prof Michael A Hayes, President of MIC said: “Connecting the artists with the primary schools has demonstrated the use of virtual technology to connect studio and classroom where exciting collaborative arts practice evolved.”The primary focus of the Studio Classroom was to promote innovative ways for artists, primary school teachers and pupils to engage and respond to art practice.This project connected artist studios directly into the primary classrooms and promoted innovative ways in which children can respond to artist work by working directly with the artist.Describing the process further Anne Marie Morrin, Visual Arts lecturer at MIC, said: “Working directly from their studios the artists transported the child into an exploratory mindset where experimenting was encouraged and risks embraced. The art sessions moved away from the traditional art class setting where emphasis is placed on the acquisition of skills through the manipulation of materials and tools.“Instead consideration was given to the starting point where the exploration of ideas and how these ideas can be transformed into visual forms.”It is hoped that the project will help develop a model for new approaches for artist, teachers, and children to work together in the teaching and learning of art in schools, and how technology can help support the creative process.

Rory climbs the leaderboard as Casey pushes on

first_img His plan tomorrow is simple: “I shall be conservative and when I get opportunities I’ll try to take them.”  His closest challenger is Finland’s Jesse Saareks on two-under, while Ireland’s Joseph Byrne and Jordan’s Shergo Kurdi are one-under.  9 Aug 2017 Rory climbs the leaderboard as Casey pushes on South Africa’s Casey Jarvis scored two-under par 70 today to extend his lead in the Reid Trophy to four shots, with a round left to play.  He is six-under for the 36 holes played so far in the English U14 boys’ open championship at Manchester Golf Club. Click here for full scores  His response was to birdie the next two holes and to add another birdie on the 16th. “I knew I was hitting the ball really good, I knew I could come back and fight back,” said Jarvis.  As he made headway today his main rivals slipped back a little, but England’s Rory McDonald-O’Brien, pictured top, (Lilleshall Hall, Shropshire) also made ground. His 70 moved him 14 places up the leaderboard and into a share of fifth place on level par.  McDonald-O’Brien played in the Reid Trophy last year but missed the cut. This year, he has set his sights on a top ten finish, buoyed by a good result in the Scottish U16s, where he was 12th and played below his handicap in all four rounds.  The gusting winds made club selection difficult, but the 13-year-old got it right with a series of extremely accurate shots for birdies. On the seventh his sand wedge approach finished 1ft away; he repeated the feat on the ninth with a seven iron; on the 14th, his wedge shot from 60 yards lipped out and left him a 2ft putt; on the 16th he chipped in.  He’s the leading English player and, while this round isn’t his lowest, it is, he said: “Right up there with my best because of the conditions.”  Casey Jarvis, pictured left, has similar aims: “I am going to try and hit as many greens as possible and make a few putts – and hopefully I can do it.” Images copyright Leaderboard Photography After today’s second round the leading 70 players qualified for tomorrow’s final round with the cut falling on 11-over par.   The 14-year-old showed his powers of resilience today. He was playing very steadily and was two under after 12 holes, when he took a triple bogey seven on the 13th after pushing his second into the long grass.  Tags: Reid Trophylast_img read more

Inside Conditions…Expense accountables

first_imgHey folks, do you see and hear all of the hype, hoopla, and hypocrisy about the event otherwise known as “March Madness?” As far as I am concerned, “March Madness” is a kind and benevolent name for money “hungriness,” greed and corruption. But there are also a few additional issues that seem to get stuck in my “craw.” What is the average cost of clothing, feeding and educating a child from birth until age twenty-one? According to a family management study last conducted by Virginia Tech in 2007, “the average cost of raising a child from birth to age 18 increased from $170,460 in 2001 to $204,060 in 2007. Who compensates the parents for all of the blood, sweat, tears and dough that they put into, Johnny, Joseph or Josephine before they step onto the stage of college athletics? Boys and girls, trust me. It does not cost 200 grand or more to provide a pillow, mattress, a meal plan and books for a performing athlete for four years of study at an accredited NCAA institution.According to cbslocal.com, the NCAA tournament’s new 14-year TV deal is worth $10.8 billion.Even the usually stoic and semi-conservative Michael Wilbon had this to say in a July 28, 2011 column, “I used to argue vehemently against paying college athletes. Tuition, room, board and books were compensation enough. And even if, increasingly, it wasn’t enough and virtually every kid who accepted a scholarship was in the red before Christmas of his freshman year, the notion of pay-for-play was at best a logistical nightmare. Where exactly would the money come from? How could you pay college football players but not baseball players or members of the women’s field hockey team? And how in the world would you pay men in a way that wouldn’t violate Title IX? So you know what caused me to do a 180 on the issue? That $11 billion deal — OK, it’s $10.8 billion to be exact — between the NCAA and CBS/Turner Sports for March Madness between 2011 and 2024. We’re talking $11 billion for three weekends of television per year. What if people in the business of money took $1.3 billion off the top, invested it, sheltered it and made it available to provide a stipend to college athletes, how could anybody stand on principal and argue against paying the people who make the events possible in the first place?”Let me declare up front I wouldn’t be the slightest bit interested in distributing the funds equitably or even paying every college athlete. I’m interested in seeing the people who produce the revenue share a teeny, tiny slice of it. That’s right, football and men’s basketball players get paid; lacrosse, field hockey, softball, baseball, soccer players get nothing. You know what that’s called? Capitalism. For more than five years, I have been writing, screaming, whooping and hollering, protesting and jumping up and down on my now destroyed soapbox lobbying for a pay-for-play system in major college sports.There are many devious and dark administrators from the NCAA and their member schools drawing perverted salaries and gleaning all types of economic advantages from collegiate sports. Parents must form a national coalition and protest movement to protect their children. Just like the labor unions of the early 20th century, the guardians of our children must all simultaneously demand equal pay for equal play.When I look at the NCAA definition of the word “amateur” I initially cringe and then I immediately become livid. As far as the NCAA is concerned a student/athlete violates their amateur status if they are paid (in any form) or accept the promise of pay for playing in an athletics contest; sign a contract or verbally commit with an agent; ask that your name be placed on a draft list (Note: in basketball, once you become a student-athlete at an NCAA school, you may enter a professional league’s draft one time without jeopardizing your eligibility provided you are not drafted by any team in that league and you declare your intention in writing to return to college within 30 days after the draft); use your athletics skill for pay in any form (for example, TV commercials); play on a professional athletics team; or participate on an amateur sports team and receive any salary, incentive payment, award, gratuity, educational expenses or expense allowance (other than playing apparel, equipment and actual and necessary travel, and room and board expenses). The NCAA is an organization of professional con-artists whose sole purpose is to control the economic structure of all of college athletics and now that power must be wrestled from them as Malcolm X would say, “by any means necessary.” My late brother Jonathan “Jody” Bruce who was an excellent billiards player had a rebuttal for those who ran off at the mouth about their pool game. He would say, “quit talkin and start chalkin.”(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected]­pittsburghcourier.com or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more
