Welcome to the new Leaving Certificate Art specification.
This specification is built around the artistic process and how it supports learning. Art is both creative and expressive and it provides an opportunity for the development of the skills necessary for creative engagement with the world.
The specification sets out clear expectations for students, across three inter-related and inter-dependent strands: Research, Create and Respond. To access the online specification, guidelines, the current Leaving Certificate Art syllabus, which will end in 2021, circulars and other notices, click on the graphic.
