Art, Craft and design is compulsory at Junior Certificate level in Terence MacSwiney and is a popular choice at senior level. Our programme includes drawing, painting, collage, mixed media, printmaking, 3D construction, ceramics, batik and textiles.
We also strive to engage where possible cross curricular work with other subjects in the school.
Each year we apply for funding for the “artist in the classroom programme” which provides our students with extra artistic experiences in areas such as jewellery making, origami, printmaking and recycled materials construction. The mural on the left is the product of this year’s project. As you can see, our students are very talented!
We are also involved in Junk Kouture, a national competition calling art students from throughout the 32 counties to create a dress and headpiece made out of discarded recycled materials.
