For me, this is a very special Thursday Doors post. This month, our youngest has just completed a Fetac Level 5 course in Art, Craft and Design at St. John’s college, Cork. This is a long established portfolio course and many of its graduates go on to study in various art and design colleges throughout Ireland and the UK. By sampling a wide choice of components, students are given the opportunity to try out different branches of the arts before committing to a higher education course. The work done throughout the year was on exhibition at the college. I hope you can see from the photographs how much effort and creativity went into these projects.
This colourful door led us to Graphic Design.
Another door led to Jewelry & Art Metal Craft
Then we made our way to Fashion Design
There was even a course in Musical Instrument Making & Repair
Below are some examples of the Art, Craft & Design course that my daughter attended. I was amazed by the wide variety of creative ideas and how each student has developed their own unique style.
I was also very impressed by this student’s work.
But I’m biased – I’m her mother!
Thanks so much for stopping by. If you would like to view more Thursday Doors, have a look at Norm’s blog and follow the blue ‘frog’ link at the bottom of his post – and if you have a door or two of your own to share, why not join in the fun.
