Tips for Successful
The easiest way to master course information is to put it to active use. This is done by
making craft projects and recipes. Tell the short tales presented in class to a friend and
discuss the material covered in conversation. If you can talk about a topic you can generally
be sure that you have mastered the topic! When you make the recipes, and crafts and when
you tell the short tales you are not only learning but you are bringing culture to life both for
yourself and for others. Give it a try today! Be sure to bring any questions that might come
up to class.
This script will automatically check your answers for you. See how good you are at these questions; if you get more than seven, move on!
A few things to do for Extra Credit!
1. Obtain a copy of A Beginner's
Manual, or Knotwork: the Secret method of the Scribes
by Aidan Meehan (Thames and Hudson) or Bain, George. Celtic Art-The Methods
of Construction., Dover, New York,1973. Use these books to create your
own Celtic designs! Feel the movement of the art!
2. Contact your local art
museum and ask the curator to tell you which items in the collection
are Irish. Perhaps you can arrange a special viewing of some which
are not generally on view!
3.If you are planning a trip to
Ireland now is a good time to find out the
opening hours of museums and galleries along your route. There is no
such thing as standard hours. You can request this information from the Irish Tourist Board.
4.As you tour Irish Shops in the
USA look for reproductions of Irish Art
on Sale. You will find the Book of Kells, The Tara Brooch and other works
to be popular. Note their names and find out where you might view the originals
in Ireland. Track them down on your tour. Also- note the prices and qualities
of the reproductions- you might just find the best value close to home!
Now! You should be on your way!
Cook those recipes and tell those tales!
Put a little life into the culture and share it with your family and friends.
