Important Information for Parents

Your childs’ education and safety is paramount. Rest assured, students will be staying in a safe and secure environment (we hold Public Liability and Accident Insurance Cover for each student). Full board accommodation is provided by a friendly, family run guest house situated across the road from the studio (see link to Clareville House) where they will enjoy the best attention and home cooked meals (please let us know in advance if your child has any special dietary requirements).


Our building is a purpose built studio designed to facilitate over 12 students and is fully equipped with arts reference library, easels, tables and most artist quality materials are provided.


If your child is applying to NCAD do not expect him/her to return from this course with a portfolio full of highly polished finished drawings – the NCAD brief is about ideas, analysis and project development. I also teach an ‘After School Study Group’ for students taking Leaving Cert Art, which is an ideal time to coincide with a 1 day portfolio course. This will give your child time to start thinking seriously about their work and will give them an opportunity to mix with other like-minded students.
