FIRST YEAR ART & DESIGN


What is the programme about?


The programmes at LSAD aim to assist students to become confident, articulate, informed, creative and expressive practitioners, who will be capable of making significant contributions in their own particular fields of contemporary culture. The Year One Art and Design programme begins this process by providing students with the necessary stimuli to encourage self-confidence, self-motivation, and an appetite for knowledge, which will drive their creative practice. Year one recognises the wide variety of backgrounds from which it draws its students. It recognises ethnic, cultural and gender diversity which are the basis of individual originality. The programme endeavours to provide students with the necessary skills, vocabulary and contextual knowledge to progress to second year of honours degree studies. Through an extensive line-up of lectures, seminars and demonstrations, the Year One programme introduces students to the most current issues in Art and Design, through the first hand experiences of contemporary practitioners.


LSAD is the largest centre for Art and Design outside of Dublin and has an award-winning reputation both nationally and internationally.


Who is the programme suited to? Year One Art & Design is a diagnostic year, where students find their niche and can avail of staff guidance to find the discipline they are best suited for in art and design.


Modules


Semester One is designed to introduce students to the working methodologies, the vocabulary, and the contemporary context of Art and Design. This is achieved through engagement in a broad-based, practical Studio Project. This project is introduced to students during Orientation Week. Throughout the project, students are introduced to a series of skills, technical processes, and conceptual considerations, by means of Seminar/Demonstrations each week. Students are encouraged to apply these skills, processes and concepts to the development of their studio project where applicable. Core areas in Semester 1 are 2D Studies, Digital Media, Concept Development and Contextual Research Studies.


Semester Two is designed around helping students make the appropriate choice of specialisation, which will form the basis of their further studies at LSAD and in turn their future careers as artists and designers. At the end of semester one, students select three specialisations. Each student then has a two week practical introduction to the area they have chosen. At the end of this six week period, there are progress reviews. After the end of the progress reviews, there is a week of feedback and tutorial advice where staff individually meet students to discuss progress and make recommendations. At this point, the student selects three areas of specialisation in order of preference. Based on an aggregated mark of the Semester One assessment and the combined score from the three electives the places on offer in Year 2 are distributed. Students then enter their Year 2 disciplines on provisional places.


What can I do after the programme? Students choose to specialise in one of eight disciplines from 2nd year to 4th year.
