In Transition year, all students have the opportunity to study Art for eight weeks.
The aim of the Transition Year Art course is to enable all TY students to appreciate art and to encourage students to develop practical problem solving skills, think creatively, experiment with their artwork and to acquire and develop new skills in a range of art disciplines.
The Transition Year Art course in Gort CS offers a range of artistic disciplines. Students explore drawing from memory, imagination, photographs and observation. They experiment with blind drawing, continuous line drawing, gesture drawing, upside-down drawing, tonal studies and they learn how to scale up a photograph. Students study typography, printmaking and acrylic painting.
Students in Transition Year also have the opportunity to design and make the sets and props for the school musical.
