“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

Students who pick art in the Senior Cycle have already had a broad and varied experience with materials.

  • Irish Art 
  • Appreciation.

Presently the marking scheme is as follows

The New Senior Cycle Art Curriculum is being launched in 2021. The marking scheme will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
