Access Day - March 2011

ACCESS DAY Textiles Workshop 0 (22).jpg
NCAD Access were delighted to welcome 110 pupils from 12 secondary schools that are linked to the College Access Programme for our annual Access Day that took place on Friday 4th March 2011.

Working closely with the art teachers in our linked secondary schools, NCAD Access aims to provide a practical opportunity of engagement to pupils with staff and students from Faculties throughout the NCAD. Access Day allows pupils to make informed choices when it comes to making decisions about whether or not they wish to apply to art college and in particular to the NCAD.

Pupils that attend Access Day are nominated to do so by their art teachers and it is hoped that this opportunity will inspire and motivate pupils to pursue their interest in art and design.

NCAD Access would like to thank staff and students from the College for their ongoing support and engagement with the Access Programme.

This year our art and design workshops included Printmaking, Photoshop in Media, CD Collage in Visual Communication, Cuttlefish Casting in Metals, Drape Draw Design in Fashion, Paper Ball in Textiles, Hot Glass Cast in Glass, Digital Photography and Drawing through Printmaking in Education, Sculpture, Chairs: The Sketch and the Chair and Designer for the Day in Industrial Design.

3Yr Education - Stewart's Hospital Project 2010

3Yr Ed Stewerts Hospital Project 2010.jpg

Stewart's Hospital is a charitable foundation, with more than 140 years tradition in the provision of care for people with intellectual disability. The institution was the first in Ireland to offer such support for people with severe disabilities. Services are provided regardless of age, religion, socio-economic background and encompassing every degree of intellectual disability.

3rd Yr Education students undertook a two week placement in Stewart’s Hospital in September working with the clients. In Rosscourt, NCAD students, trainees and clients worked on the theme of the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ celebrating the multiple intelligences of the group through making fish using various media. The group in the Coach house explored the work of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and developed individual boxes around the theme of the clients personal dreams.
The work is currently exhibited on Floor 2 of the Design building.

PGDiploma students in the Faculty of Education engaged in a four day workshop which facilitated them to identify, assess and evaluate how best to embed Development Education (DE) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) issues and concepts into the Art, Craft and Design syllabus. The student teachers worked collaboratively to create a body of work that demonstrated an informed and creative visual exploration of various issues relating to the umbrella theme of Changing landscapes. The student teachers examined a broad range of human development issues and environmental concerns through a variety of art practices. Issues focused on themes of Human Dignity, Gender Equality, Intergenerational Justice, Stewardship and Globalisation.

A selection of images from the workshop can be viewed HERE shortly.
