Creativity, problem-solving, teamwork and independent thinking

Art, Craft and Design provides the opportunity for students to express their own uniqueness and creativity in their own individual way, creating artefacts and pieces of artwork through the three standards as they learn, Students also develop an art language vocabulary and this is strengthen by their study of Art History and Appreciation.

Subject Overview

Arts, Craft and Design are the three interdependent disciplines. Each involves a different way of analysing and thinking.

  • • Art emphasises ideas, feeling and the visual qualities and responses
  • • Craft emphasises the correct use of tools, skills and materials
  • • Design emphasises planning, problem solving and completion, using drawing as a means of thinking

The benefits of an education in Art, Craft and Design for the students here in Largy College, extend far beyond a competence in the subject itself, it develops a number of important personal qualities, particularly those of initiative, preservice, sensibility and self-reliance. Visual Art at Junior Cycle aims to provide the students with a et of personal attitudes and qualities as well as skills and processes and a sense of aesthetic. Leaving Certificate art is studied across Art History and appreciation, still life, imaginative composition, design and craftwork. Art in Largy College aims to develop in students the knowledge, skills, understanding and values needed to bring an idea to realisations and to respond to, understand, analyse and evaluate their own work and the work of others in a happy, positive environment
