Leaving Certificate Applied: Visual Art and Craft and Design
Visual Art for LCA consists of two modules. The first, ‘Individuality and Identity’, allows students to investigate issues that are meaningful to them. They create images and artworks related to themselves and their culture. In the second module, ‘The Local Environment’, students create art in response to their own environment and environmental issues that they identify.
In both 5th and 6th year, students’ produce projects in craft and design. They will learn the design process and techniques of constructing 3D objects including masks, ceramics, graphic design and lino printing. There is an exam booklet to be produced near the end of sixth year and a practical written exam in June alongside the other leaving certificate exams.
