Fourth Grade Book of Kells Illuminated Letter Project

Illuminated E

Mrs. Croft’s fourth graders recently completed their Celtic art project inspired by the Book of Kells.  They used watercolor, colored pencil, and metallic acrylic paint to create their first initials in the “Illuminated” style. They learned about drawing Celtic braids, trefoils, and patterns which were used to create this beautiful and holy book.  This project developed their patience and attention to detail.  Please see the downstairs hallway gallery to see their projects and read their artist’s statements.

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
