Folium-21: An exhibition of sketchbook pages from PME 2 (Art & Design) students Munster Technological University, Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork.

This online exhibition, Folium-21, showcases sketchbook extracts from nine of the twenty-two PME 2 (Art & Design) students on the Professional Master of Education (Art & Design) programme, 2019-21. The selected pages provide an insight into the challenging but rewarding process of planning for teaching and learning in the Irish secondary school art classroom.

Amidst the multifarious academic assignments and professional research practice, creativity and inspiration have shone through; all whilst teaching art during a Global pandemic. These sketchbook pages show how teaching and learning is dynamic and ever-evolving, where student art teachers continually reflect on pedagogy, philosophy and practical art & design skills and processes. PME (Art & Design) students learn to guide, support, encourage and inspire creativity in the classroom on their journey to becoming qualified art teachers.

With thanks to all of our PME 2 (Art & Design) students, with special gratitude to Dori O’Connell who designed the layout of images for this online exhibition.
