March is a great time to teach children about Ireland. Coloring pages are a great way to show children the symbols, landscape, and even mythical stories of Ireland. I’ve created coloring pages that include:
- thatch cottage
- the Irish flag
- map of Ireland
- the claddagh
- leprechaun with his pot of gold
These printable coloring sheets are available individually or order the printable book which contains several sheets together. Fold them and create your own book about Ireland!
Printables are available in my Etsy shop at: www.etsy.com/shop/EileenMcKennaArt

I’m looking forward to the kids going back to school (lol!) and having more time to paint – especially with acrylics! This week I got a jump start and worked on my painting “Little Girl Digging.” It’s been almost 2 months since I worked on this! If I let too much time pass I lose momentum and then it’s really hard to get back into a painting.
Although I haven’t worked with acrylics all summer, I’ve been creative – sketching, painting with watercolor, etc. I’m proud of all I’ve done during these busy months. It will make September, when the house is quiet again, all the more productive.
Here is where I started from:
First I worked on the sand and added some definition to the ocean. Then (above) I added color to the ocean.
