The Art, Craft and Design course  in Skibbereen is now a long established Art Foundation course in West Cork. We have very strong links with many Art Colleges in Ireland and in the UK, particularly with the Crawford College in Cork and the DIT course in Sherkin Island where many of our students have gone on to specialise in their chosen field. Our students are given the opportunity to improve their skills  and to widen their understanding and appreciation of art through professional guidance.
We encourage our students to explore a variety of media and skills and to develop a vocabulary for evaluating their own work and the work of others. At the completion of this course you will have an extensive and varied portfolio of work.
We welcome people with some background in the Art and Crafts as well as those who wish to learn new skills and meet stimulating challenges.

I completed the Art, Craft and Design course in Skibbereen in 2006. Having a portfolio preparation course available locally is fantastic especially if you are unsure of which avenue within the larger world of art education you wish to pursue. The Art, Craft and Design course offered a broad selection of subjects from a versatile group of teachers. This allowed me the opportunity to experiment and find and develop my own strengths both artistically and personally.
The staff were always encouraging and this helped to build my confidence. The fact all the staff were active artists as well as teachers meant they could offer advice and guidance to someone seeking a career in the art world as well as giving expert art education.
Over the year I created an extensive portfolio of work and progressed to the Level 6 course. From there i went on to complete an honours degree in the Crawford College of Art and Design.Finally I completed the Higher Diploma in Teaching Art and Design in 2012.
I would strongly recommend anyone interested in a future in Art to attend this course.as Art College can be an overwhelming environment and this course enables you to learn many skills and tools needed to cope within such an environment.

As a child I loved making things and this creative side of me had been forgotten. Life took over and my creative side became a distant memory. However in a Southern Star article I saw people of all ages and abilities, i did not feel threatened by this and felt i could do this too. It has been a huge journey of personal development for me, a really positive experience. The timetable is ideally suited to the mature student and each student is given the opportunity to progress at their own pace. Individuality is encouraged and nurtured. Both courses helped me realise my potential. Two years ago I wouldn’t have thought it possible that I would be applying to 3rd level college. Now I am actually studying for my degree. It has been a life changing experience for me, the possibilities are endless.

Pim came to Ireland as a construction worker. As the economy slowed down Pim found himself unemployed and applied for the Level 5 Art course in Skibbereen. ‘Initially i thought i would just get better at drawing band painting and yes i did that but it also led me to create 3 dimensional work which I would not have considered before. I really enjoyed working in Ceramics. Level 6 allowed me to work on a more personal level, it helped me to discover what i was about as an artist and all the work came from what I was interested in. My experience in Skibbereen has improved my life greatly and showed me a new path to take’
