August Workshops

Some people call it barren and rocky, others call it lunar and magical, but beyond what it looks like, the Burren is a place of inspiration and creativity.  With every path, boreen, valley or hilltop, artists from all over the world let their creative spirits come alive in the Burren.

Whether you are one of them or you’d simply like to try something different,  give yourself a special gift this year: the gift of painting,  drawing or photography in a professional artist studio at Burren College of Art. The tutors will offer demos, valuable tutorials and guidance in five day courses – all  you have to do is choose your favorite one.

To compliment that, good healthy meals, prepared daily from locally sourced produce are available in the cafe on campus while bright and comfortable self-catering accommodation can be booked online  in our college housing located at a ten minutes leisurely walk from BCA.

So have a look at the summer workshops listed below or email Julia for more information. Also, watch this space as other workshops may be added throughout the year.

See you in the Burren this summer!



If painting is your gift, embrace it and sign up!
