All Cork Visions classes and workshops are held at:

Visions School of Art,

Longs Yard,

Tower Street,

Cork City.

Directions to the Visions School of Art:

Directions: walk up Barrack Street against the traffic, until you reach the former Nancy Spain’s on the left. Follow the laneway up the side of Nancy Spain’s and Long’s Yard is about 10 meters up on the left. Once through the gate, you need to enter through the glass door on the left.

If you are driving, you will most likely approach Tower Street from the other end. Drive up Industry Street from the top of Douglas Street (the turn for Industry Street is just beside Miyazaki Japanese Restraurant). Continue to the end of Industry Street and straight onto St Finbarr’s Street between some redbrick houses and at the end take a right down Tower Street – Longs Yard will now be on your right, just before the street narrows to a laneway (Kitten Lane). Turn right into the yard and again the door is in the glass frontage on your left.

You might also turn onto Tower Street from were the R851 meets the bottom of Friar’s Walk – if so, continue down to the other end of Tower Street and follow the same instructions as above with regards Kitten Lane and Long’s Yard being on the right before it.

If you still can’t find us, despite your best efforts, call us at 087 1499615, and we will guide you in.

Parking: is EUR1 for 2-hour classes and EUR5 for day-long workshops at Longs Yard.

Adult Art Classes at Visions:

The following quote could be said to encapsulate what Visions is all about:

“I had a teacher at the school of art who said something about the only works he really enjoyed seeing, or found much in, were works where he had a sense that a discovery was made in the course of making this object. I like to hold to that as my marching orders”

- Martin Mull

Adult Art Classes, Workshops and Events:

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.

Adult Art Classes Tutored by the Founder:

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.
