Visual Art - Junior Cycle

It is a very exciting time to be studying Art as the subject is continuing to change in exciting ways. Art can be enjoyed by everybody and students are encouraged to develop their self-confidence, imagination as well as skills in looking and thinking about the world around us and responding to important contemporary issues.

A wide variety of disciplines including painting, drawing, collage, graphic and pattern design, printmaking and sculpture are covered. Skills in composition, proportion, shading techniques and colour theory are also explored.
