3rd Year Art Themes for Junior Cert

Here are the new themes for this years Junior Cert Art Exam 2018/19. Iv suggested ideas that may be helpful under each theme

1: "Nice One" 
Here you could describing an achievement or something good that happened to you,such as winning a match, taking part in something, or achieving something with your family or with friends. For your primary sources you could bring in awards, cups/trophies,medals, sports gear, music instruments, or objects that represent in achieving your goal or reward.

2: Water
This is a very broad theme and can take on many avenues, from swimming in water, to water sports, to waterfalls, water in landscapes, water in the home, drinking water, watering plants, animals needing water-rivers/ponds, floods and bad weather.

3: Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it- Confucius
Confucius was a Chinese teacher and philosopher.He believed in accepting something as true,and aimed at bettering society,like respecting elders, and not to judge or say anything negative to another person.
Here you might do your project on Confusius himself and his teachings and bring into the realm of our society or you may take the quote itself and explore its meaning. So look at every day things/objects that may not be perfect or as pretty but explore the options of showing it in a different light.

4:Whats over the hill?
This theme has many different options to choose from. you may decide to look at the landscape around where you live and take pictures from different areas, such as the farm land, animals, forests etc. Or you may take the quote as something that has aged and is "over the hill"

5: Pets and their care
This theme could explore pets at home, and their daily care from feeding, washing and playing with the animal. This could also venture into the farming and care of cows, sheep , horses, pigs etc, if you live on a farm take pictures and look at the animals feeding ,resting etc.

6: Poem: Acquainted with the night.
This poem was written by Robert Frost, the poem is quite dark and has much meaning to the poet.


He is quite lonely and the city is very quite only for a short cry from a far. Here you might like to explore city life during during the day and how its so different at night, the moon, the city landscape at night, etc
