A very sad day for Art Education in Ireland.

It is with great regret that we must share the sad news of the death of Dr Kieran Meaghar, Course Leader, Art and Design Education, Limerick School of Art and Design. A leading figure in Art Education in Ireland, his influence will long live on in our art rooms across the country. We extend our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. May he rest in peace.

ATAI Leaving Cert Art Syllabus Change Campaign

This week the ATAI began a campaign to bring the issue of our extremely outdated Leaving Cert Art syllabus to the attention of Minister Ruairi Quinn. At our last National meeting at Collins Barracks in May it was decided that a letter should be written to our Minister for Education, outlining some of the main concerns that teachers have in relation to the aged syllabus. We hope that every Art teacher who shares this sentiment will support this campaign for change by signing and posting the letter to Minister Ruairi Quinn.
