Subject overview



The aim of Finn Valley College Art Department is to develop imagination, creativity, independence and resourcefulness in our pupils through the teaching and learning of a wide variety of practical and academic skills in the area of art, craft and design and the history and appreciation of art. Ms Molloy (Art Teacher) ensures our pupils have access to a range of media and there are unlimited opportunities to discover their potential in this subject.

We aim to foster a lifelong appreciation of art and visual culture through practical art making and creativity and also through the study of art history. Pupils are encouraged to visit galleries, museums and develop an awareness and enjoyment of the visual world around them. Click on the picture below to read about their recent visit to Dublin.
