Visions School of Art

Top Floor of Granary House, Rutland Street, Cork City, Cork, Ireland

Visions School of Art is singular as a host of adult art classes, because what is studied and taught at Visions is book-ended by (a) a concern for the honing of craft and skill in any drawing and painting media, and (b) an intention to explore the student’s creative process, including what is meant by the Imagination. These concerns mean that students can attend the school to simply learn or improve a skill, participate in a workshop or adult art classes aimed at opening up the student’s individuality and resourcefulness as an artist, or both at once.

Adult art classes include various drawing and painting courses, as well as a Portfolio preparation course (for students intending on entering 3rd Level Art education), Creativity Workshops, Workshops on accessing Imagination, &c. All classes are currently held in the West Court Room at The Lantern Centre on Synge Street in Dublin 8.

Visions School of Art was founded by Andrew Carroll BA MA Visual Arts Practice (both at IADT Dun Laoghaire). Andrew is also the sole tutor of adult art classes at the school; he himself specialises in Drawing and Painting within his own Visual Art practice. He has exhibited his paintings at numerous exhibitions, including the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition, which is selected by members of the RHA from an open submission. Andrew founded Visions School of Art in 2013.

As well as being a professional Visual Artist, Andrew has a deep interest in teaching, and has previously worked for the City of Dublin VEC teaching Painting and Drawing in both adult art classes (adult education) and in rehabilitation programmes; he has also worked as an art teacher at Trinity Arts Workshop (Trinity College), and as an Art workshop facilitator for teenagers for many art schools, institutions and bodies, including The Emerald Cultural Institute, Sky Arts (TV Channel) and The Irish Prisons Service.
