RIAI and Oide Graphics Exhibition 2024

RIAI/Oide Graphics Exhibition 2024  - "This is ME"

The RIAI, in collaboration with the Oide Graphics team, is delighted to announce the "This is ME" exhibition. This event offers Junior Cycle Graphics students the opportunity to have their work showcased.

Students were encouraged to observe the world around them and select an object, building, or space that reflects their interests or personality. They communicated their observations graphically, utilising various presentation methods such as sketching, board drawing, modelling, photography, CAD, and video.

What is Junior Cycle Graphics?

In Junior Cycle Graphics, students develop their creativity, spatial ability, and capacity to reason and communicate ideas through engagement with abstract and applied geometric problem-solving activities. Graphics encourages the development of the cognitive and practical dexterity skills associated with graphical communication.

In Junior Cycle Graphics students investigate and solve design challenges. They work with their peers to refine their ideas from an abstract concept to a final, detailed, drafted design. Abstraction, and spatial reasoning are fundamental to this process; graphics provides multiple and varied opportunities for students to develop these high level cognitive and creative skills in engaging contexts. Skills that encourage the student to solve problems through creation, innovation, communication, collaboration and exploration, all of which are developed in an active learning environment where students can advance their ideas from conception to realisation.

They will 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.
