All Cork Visions classes and workshops are held at:

Visions School of Art,


Top Floor,

Granary House,

Rutland Street,

Cork City.

Directions to the Visions School of Art:

Directions: from George’s Quay (where Filter Cafe is) walk (with your back to the Quay Co-op) to where the river takes a corner, across from the front door of Cork College of Commerce. Instead of following the river around the bend, however, continue straight ahead onto South Terrace and take the 2nd street on the right, which is Rutland Street. Continue up the street about half-way, and you will see a large refurbished granary building on your right (there are some signs for Artist-spaces to rent on the front of the building).

If you are coming from Douglas Street, walk up or down Douglas Street until you see the Spar on your right or left. Rutland Street is the street that is perpendicular to Douglas Street, and meets it directly across from the Spar. Turn down Rutland Street, and see Granart House on your left (refurbished granary buildiing with cut-stone facade).

You will see an electricity box on the footpath in front of the building, and just beyond it is a door – this is the entrance. There will be a code stuck on a sheet on the inside of the glass of the door: you can use the keypad to let yourself in and then come to the top of the stairs – Visions is facing the toilets on that floor. If you still can’t find us, despite your best efforts, call us at 087 1499615, and we will guide you in.
Parking: If you drive up Rutland Street away from the Lee, and towards the Spar on Douglas Street, take a left at the Spar. Ahead of you about 20 yards is a small, enclosed carpark (a low wall surrounding it) on the left side of the road. Parking should be available there for free after 6:30pm. The next closest public carpark is on Union Quay (very close – about 1 minutes walk away), and then at the Elysian Building, which is about 8 minutes walk away, max; that said, you may be able to find a place along the side of a street after 6:30pm, as traffic moves out of the city at that stage and parking becomes free.

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.
