Please contact me directly emma.forde@lcetb.ie with  completed art history essays or any questions regarding your coursework, & I will be able to provide you feedback on how to improve/develop your work further.

I will keep you updated on any developments from SEC with regards your coursework. As yet Booklets are still not permitted to be completed at home, but I am expecting further news on this.

 

Leaving Cert Art      

Art History:

  1. Correct /rewrite all essays from mock exams. See my notes on additional information required and marking scheme.

All sketches need improving. They need to be more accurate, especially the Irish art section .

Use different media, colouring pencil, and fineliner for details .and always label.

  1. Complete 1 essay from each section of Irish, European & art appreciation 2019 paper.

Underline the statement /headings given and make sure you answer all part of the question asked. Don’t forget your sketches, framed & labeled.

Use marking scheme to correct own work, & I will also correct them on return to school.

Practical work: Coursework

  1. As coursework booklets are not permitted to be completed at home, continue work in sketchbooks/additional paper developing ideas for poster/ imaginative composition/ still life depending on what you have left to complete.

Life Drawing: work on A2 size sheet if possible or in your A3 sketchbook.

  1. Practice 15 min sketches of full figure in various poses. See past papers for suitable poses. Quick gestural drawings are sufficient. Do not spend more than 15 mins on these sketches.

30 min sketches: Seated pose

Can be complete seated figure or half figure(including elbows). This sketch should be more detailed, with details on hands & face.

Time yourself & aim for a completed sketch in 15/30 mins.

Experiment with different media. Charcoal & white chalk on sugar paper is quick & looser than pencil on white paper. Colouring pencils can liven up a sketch when used for shadows/highlights.  Don’t use paint.

Get a family member to pose for you, or take a photo of them on your phone in the pose & work from that.

 

3rd Year Art

Continue to work in your own sketchbooks developing ideas for finished pieces. Outline plans for 2d & 3D finished pieces .

Complete research for influence sheet; this must include techniques/textures you will use to make your clay/art piece ,watercolour background etc, imagery of artists/graphic design research that has inspired you and any other inspiration.

I have spoken to students individually & outlined their own personal work that can be completed during the school closures.

 

1st year Art

  • Page 1 in sketchbook: create an A4 self portrait using pencil.

 The work must show consideration for detail and the application of value and tone to create form.

  • Page 2 in sketchbook: Draw all features(mouth, eyes & nose)using some form of expression.

Tip:cut images from magazines or newspapers, stick them in sketchbook & copy these.

  • Page 3 in sketchbook: Research project.

Research an artist that you like that has created a self portrait. This can be realistic/abstract work of art. Your project must include a photocopy of your selected self portrait artwork, your own drawing of the self portrait(this can be a close up, in any medium) and write 10 lines approx. about the artists background, facts about their work, and your own opinion about their work.

2nd Year Art  E.Forde         March 2020

As we are currently starting a 3d sculpture project in class based on our favourite food, students should complete a research project based on artists who have used food a subject matter for their art.

Suggested artists are:

  • Acrimboldo
  • Claus Oldenburg
  • Roy Lichenstein
  • Andy Warhol
  • Wayne Thiebaud
  • Rene Magritte

Students should use the internet to familiarise themselves with the works produced by these different artists. Students may also find other examples of food related artworks that they find interesting.

 

Choose 1 of these artists or one of your own and create an A4 research project.

 

  1. Sketch an example of their work that relates to the subject matter of “Food”                                                          Use any suitable media (colouring pencils, watercolour paint, pen etc)
  2. Write 5 interesting facts about the artist.
  3. Describe the artists use of media (Did the artist use paint/papier mache/fabric etc)
  4. Describe the artists use of colour
  5. Give your own opinion on the artwork, do you like it & why?
  6. How might you possibly use some of their ideas in your own 3D  artwork?
  7. Print out an example of one of their artworks if possible.
