Connacht Art Schools
With its rich tradition of visual art, and resident Irish artists, the province of Connacht (which includes the counties of Galway, Mayo, Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo) has a number of fine and applied art courses, to equip students for a variety of arts-based career options. On completion, successful students may choose a career as an individual full-time artist (eg. in painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics), or as a commercial or industrial designer, curator or art-historian, or pursue a career within Ireland's visual arts industry.
