Access Day

Pupils are invited to participate in experiential art and design workshops that are designed and facilitated by art and design students.  Every year over one hundred senior cycle pupils attend and have the opportunity to participate in two art and design workshops over the day.  Access Day helps 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.  Examples of Departmental workshops include Printmaking, Photoshop in Media, CD Collage in Visual Communication, Cuttlefish Casting in Jewellery and Metals, Drape Draw Design in Fashion, Paper Ball in Textiles, Hot Glass Cast in Glass, Digital Photography and Drawing through Printmaking in Art and Design Education, Sculpture and Product Design.
