BA Visual Art Graduate Assessments

Phew I am glad thats over! Final assessments were held last week for the seven fourth year students. Our work was on display for assessment in the Sherkin Community Hall, and in two private studios on the Island.

The period leading up to our assessments was intense. The drama was exacerbated by storm force winds that resulted in cancelled ferries and falling electricity lines.

Our work was assessed on Friday 23rd February by a team of Lecturers from DIT. This was followed by individual interview with our extern examiner Helen O'Donoghue, Head of Education & Community Programmes, at IMMA.

On Sunday 24th February there was an open house invite to all Islanders to come and see the work, which proved to be a very relaxed and sociable event.

Now we look forward to receiving our individual grades, a very special graduation day, a group exhibition at the West Cork Arts Centre and exhibiting with the 2009 DIT graduates based in Mountjoy Square, Dublin.
