Graphics & DCG Subject Information

Graphics is recognised as the underpinning language of the technology disciplines and is transferable across a wide range of subjects such as Mathematics, Science and Art. Students will use a variety of media to communicate their ideas and designs through this unique language. Students develop cognitive and practical skills such as graphical communication, spatial visualisation, creative problem-solving, design capabilities and modelling, both physically and through the use of computer-aided design.

Students will continually review and reflect on their working drawings developing strategies for improvement as they progress through both Junior Cycle Graphics and Leaving Certificate Design and Communication Graphics.
