Student Experiences

“Very many thanks for a most enjoyable and instructive year in the art course at Kinsale college where I learnt to do so much I had never thought possible. Of all the teachers I have had in my life none compare with the quality of those I met in Kinsale College. Their commitment and unfailing enthusiasm is truly unique.”

“With an entrepreneurial and design background I enrolled on the art course as a mature student looking to develop a new direction. It’s an exceptionally enjoyable course taught by very knowledgeable tutors. The unique strength of this course is how you’re taught to develop your analytical and creative thought processes. In a very short space of time this opened up enormous new opportunities for me in terms of my career and personal growth. The dedication and encouragement of the tutors and enthusiasm of my classmates are what made this possible. I highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of any type of creative career or already in one and stagnating.”
