Art and Design Latest Department News

On Friday the 20th January 2012, GCSE and A Level Art students visited the Street Art and ‘True Colours’ exhibition, in the Ulster Museum, Belfast. Students were able to view a range of artworks first hand and a great day was had by all. The ‘True Colours’ exhibition houses the top GCSE and A Level artworks, chosen by CCEA. Mr Coyle and Miss Byrne are proud that the work of Year 13 student Michael Jurkowski, is part of the exhibition this year. Students who visited the exhibition were blown away by the quality of work and were very proud that a student from ICD had been selected to be part of the exhibition. Miss Byrne would like to congratulate the students who attended the trip on their excellent behaviour; they were fantastic ambassadors for the college!

Congratulations to Michael Jurkowski. His work has been selected for an exhibition celebrating the best Art across all schools in Northern Ireland at GCSE and A’level. The exhibition is called ‘True Colours’ and takes place at the Ulster Museum from 13 th January to 22 nd February. It is a major achievement for Michael as the exhibition is very exclusive and is held in high prestige. Michael was also top scorer at GCSE level in Art and Design, scoring an amazing 100% in coursework and the exam. This is the second year in a row the Art department has had a student accepted for the ‘True Colours’, with Laura Hynds having represented the College last year. Well done Michael.

Congratulations to Laura Hynds of Year 13. Her GCSE artwork was showcased in ‘The True Colours Exhibition’. The event is organised by CCEA and displays the work of some of Northern Ireland 's brightest young artists and designers. It is a selection of the examination board’s most impressive candidates across GCSE and A’ Level. Mr. Coyle said “This is a fantastic achievement for Laura. She is a very talented young lady who works hard and is a pleasure to teach. The exhibition is very exclusive and it is great for Laura and for the college to be represented in it”. Laura was awarded an A* and is continuing her Art and Design education at A’ Level within ICD. Well done Laura.


Pupils from I.C.D., Windmill Primary and Dungannon Primary were recently involved in an exciting workshop as part of the Dungannon Arts Festival. The work produced tackles the important theme of ‘Preserving our Environment’ and is on exhibition at Ranfurly House. The multi-media work produced embraces a wide range of techniques including painting, collage and stencilling. Mr. Coyle would like to thank Sarah McKernan, Katherine Paisley, Dion Carroll and Grace Kerr for helping with the workshops.

Four of our 6th Form students were recently involved in a professional Art exhibition showcasing the work of a number of local Artists. The pupils involved were JB Murray (work pictured below), David Maye, Elsie Cooke and Paul Cummings. This was an excellent achievement for the pupils involved and a great opportunity for them to display the outstanding ability and hard work throughout the year.

Throughout the past few weeks the Art Department have been running a raffle in an attempt to raise funds for new materials and equipment. The prizes were a massive Easter hamper packed with chocolate, a great 51 piece Art Set, and an Easter egg. The draw took place this week. First place went to Connie Barenskie, second was taken by Tiernan Gribbin, whilst Andrew Stafford won the third placed prize. Mr. Coyle would like to thank everyone who supported the competition by buying a ticket as we managed to raise a fantastic £107.

On Thursday 11th December, eight yr 10 pupils accompanied Mr. Coyle to Manor Court where they were invited to paint Christmas scenes on the windows. Photos are available to view on our Art and Design pages. The students, all very talented artists, produced some vivid illustrations that really manage to capture the festive feeling. They all represented the college commendably. Mr. Coyle would like to thank the students listed for their help. They were Ethan Carroll, Michael Jurkowski, Niamh McElroy, Marcela Janekova, Kerry-Anne Wright, Cassandra Brandao, Connie Barenskie, Winnie Yau andMegan Lee.
