A new Leaving Certificate Art specification is in development. The current Leaving Certificate Art (including Crafts) syllabus is available here. It is assessed at Higher and Ordinary levels.
The development of a new Leaving Certificate Art specification began in May 2017.
The background paper focused on the current state of the subject and the recent developments with the new Junior Cycle Visual Art specification, current research and developments in art in general as well as curriculums from other jurisdictions. This background paper is open for consultation at present.
The Art Development Group consists of the nominees from a range of education stakeholders including teacher and management bodies, Department of Education and Skills, and the State Examinations Commission.
