If the thought of studying art on the grounds of a 16th century castle in rural Ireland sounds appealing to you, then the Burren College of Art may be the ideal program for you. The most unique aspect of studying at the Burren College of Art is the setting. Your creativity will be inspired by both the facilities and the surrounding area. You'll have personal studio space and one-on-one guidance by faculty and visiting artists who are noted for their outstanding achievement in contemporary art and scholarship. With fewer than 40 students - all practicing artists - the Burren College of Art offers an intensive and highly individualized experience.
Course selection include a variety of studio art classes such as painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture amid the magnificent landscape of the Burren, an area that has long been an inspiration for artists of all genres because of its ethereal and intriguing beauty. In addition to traditional art courses, the College offers Insight on Site, a special program that encourages integration of various creative pursuits to broaden and advance artistic perception and methods. You'll also be able to choose courses in Irish history and art history. Optional trips to galleries and museums in Dublin, London and Paris put your experience into the broader context of the art world and its global influences.
We encourage you to contact your program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you should pack. Once you arrive in Ireland, our staff will lead an orientation program in Dublin that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of Ireland as well as preparing you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system.
