Adult Art Classes at Visions School of Art

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.

Dublin Adult Art Classes : a Learner-Centered Approach

Visions uses a “learner-centered” (also known as ‘differenciated learning’) approach with regards to how our Dublin adult Art classes are taught. This means that in each session, the teacher will take you – as an individual – from your level of capability and skills at the beginning of each class. You will then be helped to progress from that point. This is a realistic and highly effective way of learning, in that that you will not be expected to advance in comparison to the level or ability of other students in the class. Instead you will begin where you are at yourself and proceed from there. This makes the process of learning all the more enjoyable. As well as this, it makes learning from pressures that one might find in another education environments.
