Our dedicated Art Room is always full of students busily drawing, painting, pencilling, carving, cutting, crepe-ing, colouring… well, being creative in one way or another! Mr. O’Dulaing may bemoan the colossal clean-up but he is justifiably proud of the number of Conlethian graduates now going on to degrees and careers in art and design. Our recent graduates have gone on to NCAD and IADT and other top-notch art programmes, and the pieces which they have left behind cover our walls! It all starts in First Year, when all students are obligated to take Art, and there is the option (and encouragement) to continue onwards to the JC, LC and beyond. Ms. Halpin nurtures and develops the talents of her students with a firm but encouraging hand, and you need only walk our hallways to see the stunning student art which is often the result.
