They brought in dogs, dollies, daddies and duvets.
Now one Cork primary school has its very own collection of incredible quarantine art created by students and their families during the Covid-19 lockdown, inspired by some of the most famous artworks in the world.
And it was all made using household objects.
Motivated by the Getty Challenge, which has seen thousands of self-isolators around the world recreate their favourite work of art using everyday items they find at home, the Carrigaline Educate Together NS Parent Association Facebook Group has been filling up with brilliant efforts from pupils and parents.
“We have not been together in school since Thursday, March 12th. We really miss our school community.” teacher Rory Ward told Yay Cork.
“However, we wanted to do something creative and constructive whilst we are apart. The CETNS Quarantine Art Project is our response to the situation. I think some of the recreations our students and families have made are really incredible and guaranteed to put a smile on people’s faces.
“The Art Project is being updated regularly but we would love to share it on a larger scale with the wider public.”
Some of the most impressive tributes include a brilliant take on Mrs Gardiner in White, a 1922 work by John Singer Sargent, using a large duvet and Norman Rockwell’s Coming and Going, re-enacted by a Cork family in their car.
