This is a choice subject for Junior Certificate. A thorough investigation of painting and design for craftwork, including ceramics, forms the basis of the Art curriculum.
The Senior cycle sees the introduction of the history and the appreciation of Art, studied alongside the continued development of skills in drawing, painting and various crafts.
Field trips are an important information-gathering resource and annual excursions to the Zoo and the Natural History Museum are organised for students in Form 2. Newgrange is visited by Transition Year, as well as regular trips to exhibitions as they arise.
Extra - curricular activities in Art, Crafts & Design include portfolio classes, ceramics classes and set design work.
