Hugh Lane Courses

Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane’s Education and Research Department will be running a Saturday Portfolio Preparation course, starting this Saturday 3rd November 2012. For further information about the course please see details below.

12-week Portfolio Course


§  03 November 2012 – 02 February 2013

12-week Portfolio Preparation Course

Saturdays, 3 November 2012 – 2 February 2013 (12 weeks excluding Saturday 22 December and Saturday 29 December).
10.30am – 12.30pm (€180)

Led by artist Fiona King, the purpose of this 12-week course is to instruct students in the preparation and production of a portfolio of work that will cater for entry to third level art colleges. Through continual emphasis on idea generation, group discussion,  evaluation and practical application, students will identify and clarify the process involved in producing a body of art work. The students will demonstrate how each of the ideas they generate is connected and influences the work to follow through a visual or conceptual association. The visual research will be presented through notebooks, worksheets and resolved pieces. For students to truly benefit from this experience, assignments will need to be completed outside of the scheduled classes.

Fee: €180. Early enrolment is advised, as numbers are limited. To book, please contact the Education and Research Department on Tel. +353 1 2225553/8  or  email
