Art, Craft and Design is taught to all First Year students as a taster. After this students can opt in to the subject and study it to Junior Cert Level. The Junior Cert curriculum delivers a varied programme that includes graphic design, painting, sculpture, and craftwork. The core principles of drawing and appreciation of art underlie all aspects of the programme. The Art curriculum aims to provide students with a broad and in depth art, craft and design experience. Students are encouraged to try lots of different types of art practice and to develop their artistic skills.
