Every summer KCAT Arts Centre runs a six day/once a week Summer Studio for artists of any level who are interested in developing their work. It takes place in our large airy and light studio space with access to basic equipment and some essential materials. Artists are advised to bring specialist equipment and their own brushes. Canteen facilities are available for lunch and tea breaks. The cost is 120 euro for six days/ 20 euro a day.
I am on hand to guide and assist, for any advice or feedback you may need, but the small group of peers you will meet and work with provide invaluable support and encouragement during this time.

Entering KCAT, an art studio for people of mixed abilities in Callan, Co Kilkenny, is an experience you are unlikely to forget. Passing beneath a three-storey mural of what looks like a mischievous bandit balancing a multicoloured building on his turban, you progress through a cut-stone portal, carved by KCAT artists, and find yourself inside a building decked with artworks of such untrammeled vibrancy and colour that you can’t help but want to start painting yourself.
