Fine Art with Ceramics

Course Description.

This full time PLC (Post Leaving Cert) course facilitates the learner to explore fine art concepts and subject areas that are of interest to them. We provide a range of complimentary modules that provide an  integrated approach to learning. This creates a confidence in the learner to further develop their own personal creative skills and concepts. Practical workshops are tailored to equip each individual with the skills to either continue in independent professional practice or to progress to Third Level study. This provides the learner with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and competence to work autonomously and independently in a fine art context. Through a combination of both tutor lead and self-directed learning this is achieved. Each student has their own studio space and storage, with specialist staff who teach their own specialisms. Guest speakers from the art world are invited in to talk to and meet with the students. We also include field trips to galleries and other course related trips as part of the academic year.
