At Blackwater Community School, Visual Art is offered to students in Junior Cycle & Senior Cycle. We have two Art Rooms dedicated to the three strands of Art, Craft, & Design. Over the course of the subject we will be exploring disciplines such as Drawing, Painting, Printing, Ceramics, Clay modelling, & more.
At senior level the subject is further enriched with the introduction of the History of Art where students learn more about Irish, European & Conceptual Art. In Senior Cycle student will have the opportunity to visit an Art Gallery such as the Glucksman, Crawford or Garter Lane as part of their studies.
Visual Art is also explored as part of the Transition Year Programme. Our Transition year students create works for ‘Artifice’ each year. This is a student exhibition held annually in Lismore Castle Arts Gallery. The opening night is a firm calendar favourite!
We also have our own Instagram page to showcase some of our students work. Become our newest follower! @bcs_art_gallery
