DesignSKILLS

A new Arts in Junior Cycle initiative for teachers and students of Junior Cycle Visual Art

DesignSKILLS

Design & Craft Council of Ireland (DCCoI) in partnership with Junior Cycle Teachers (JCT), are delighted to announce DesignSKILLS, a new Arts in Junior Cycle initiative for teachers and students of Junior Cycle Visual Art.

DesignSKILLS is a nationwide post-primary level programme which aims to support the integration of the principles and key skills which underpin the Framework for Junior Cycle (2015), the Arts in Education Charter (2012) and the Creative Ireland Programme (2017 – 2022), Pillar 1 Creative Youth.

The DesignSKILLS programme provides an opportunity for teachers of Visual Art, with their students, to work directly with a designer/maker. Junior Cycle Visual Art ‘provides the learner with a space within which it is safe to experiment, to fail and to learn’. Through DesignSKILLS, a designer/maker will work in partnership with teachers and their students to focus on the front end of the design process.

The emphasis in DesignSKILLS is on investigating initial ideas, researching, experimenting and developing students’ own ideas through a range of hands-on practical methodologies and approaches, including using sketchpads.

Places on the DesignSKILLS programme are limited. Further details and the online application form can be found on: www.jctregistration.ie

Closing date Wed., 19th September 2018
