Seeing Spaces
How do we see? The impact of the visual and the ways in which we see are investigated through the new Junior Cycle Visual Art syllabus.

In our collaboration with the National Gallery of Ireland (NGI), Junior Cycle Art students will visit two cultural institutions: the IFI in Temple Bar, and the newly refurbished National Gallery on Merrion Square. Through a film screening at IFI and study of artworks at the NGI, students will be invited to question the works seen as well as respond to the spaces in which they are exhibited.

Following both of these student visits, in a separate CPD session, teachers will have the opportunity to offer feedback on the student visits, as well as explore ways of continuing student learning into 2nd Year and beyond.

April 18, 10.30-16.00 (Screening + Gallery visit)
Bookings for the combined screening and NGI event is through IFI Education on 01 6795744 or email schools@ifi.ie.  

Film screening:
The Red Turtle (PG)
This sumptuous, almost dreamlike and silent animation is set on a remote island where a single man has washed up. A co-production with the legendary Studio Ghibli, Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit has created a completely visual story, for its audience to interpret.
