CCAM Sea Change Exhibition & tour of the art college

1st year Visual Art Students has a great engagement day with the art college & gallery in GMIT (CCAM – Creative Centre for Arts & Media), which displayed their artwork in the form of postcards. John Langan the head of the art faculty spent time giving the students a very informative talk about the creative process and the different career opportunities in art and gave the students a tour of the different art studios within the college.

1st year Art students Seachange Exhibition

The Art Teachers Association of Ireland have arranged space in The Gallery of The Creative Centre for Art and Media in Galway, in order for our junior cycle students in the west of Ireland to experience and exhibit their creative work in a real art gallery environment. I got my 1st year Visual Art Students to respond to a brief through research & investigation and create an A5 postcard with the theme – Seachange. The opening of the exhibition is on Tuesday 17th April at 6:30 and is open to the public until Sunday 22nd April. I will be taking the 1st year art class on Wednesday 18th to the exhibition to view their work and the work from other schools in the area. The students will also get a tour of the art college on the day by the head of the art faculty. Ms. Scott.

Student Enterprise Final- Ty & 1st Years

Transition Year Students and some 1st years were privileged to be in the final of the Schools Enterprise Programme in the Clayton Hotel, Galway. It was a very interesting business project for all involved. They had workshops initially in the school on enterprise education with Garry Lowe and then began the task of setting up a business. They had to cover all aspects of their business in their report and display it on the day of the final. Each group were interviewed by a judging panel and there was great excitement when a group from 1st year won the Junior Category for their business Craft Card Co. There was great applause when a group from TY were awarded Best Business Plan for their business Jasacomi Rollers. All the students were complimentary of the programme and took great pride in displaying their business ideas and speaking about them to the judging panel. There was a great buzz throughout the day and the other business displays from TY were very interesting and they included Bake n Cake, Wax in the City and Dunmore Ink. Well done to our 32 students and their teachers Ms Anne Fallon and Ms Marie Scott who were part of this exciting enterprise programme.
