The Drawing Studio offers students a unique hands-on training in the museum/gallery district of Dublin’s city centre.
This interdisciplinary, process-driven course is the only one of its kind in Ireland and has been developed specifically to meet the growing demand for practical artistic training.
Drawing Studio Full Time offers more tuition in-house than any other art college in Ireland. A tutor is always on hand and class sizes are small allowing students significantly more personal attention. At other art schools today, it has become the norm for students to be self-directed – only receiving a couple of hours consultation with a tutor per week and the occasional specialised class in, for example, life drawing.
The Drawing Studio is very different, it is all about structured, involved tuition. We are not primarily concerned with self-expression or art-making, rather the emphasis is on teaching the discipline and skills which facilitate art-making. We aim to give students the ability to transmit their creative impulse intact.
Who is the course for?
This course is designed for everyone, whether beginner or advanced, young and older, who want to develop useful, practical skills. While obviously valuable to artists it is just as beneficial for those who work, or have an interest in design, architecture, fashion, mathematics, medicine, engineering, film.
The essential qualification is the commitment, along with determination and courage.
Enrolment is still open for those who wish to jump aboard!
What can one expect to achieve?
While the school doesn’t offer a diploma or credits yet, committed students can leave with something to show, an accomplished body of work, which demonstrates a high level of skill in drawing. This is what the working art, film, fashion, and media industries are ultimately interested in.
