Our Art Courses:

We run a range of art courses in painting, photography, collage, decorative art, drawing, stained glass, mosaic and more.

It is our intention to set clear, challenging and achievable objectives for each course. We are serious about what we do but that doesn’t mean things will be formal or highly structured. Often the direction of a course will be governed by the interests and abilities of the participants. That’s the beauty of small class sizes, we’re flexible and you’ll be surrounded by like-minded people eager to share and collaborate. Whether you’re a full-time artist, student or art is your hobby you’ll find yourself learning in an enjoyable, supportive and professional environment.

We believe in offering choices of media in our courses. No two artists work is the same. We hope to nurture individual styles. We like to keep things flexible to suit each persons needs. It is our objective that participants utilise the full array of facilities that The Art Hand offers as much as possible.

Easily-accessible Location:

Waterford is well connected by rail, bus, road, air and sea. It is approximately 100km from Cork City and 135km from Dublin. Waterford Airport offers flight to and from destinations within Ireland and the UK.
