I teach art classes at my studio in Athenry, Co. Galway. Classes are with oil painting, watercolours, mixed media, drawing and sketching.
I gained a Higher Diploma (honours) in Art and Design Education from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2001. In 2005 I received a higher Diploma in Professional Education Studies from N.U.I. Galway. I have over 17 years teaching experience including teaching adults, portfolio preparation courses, teenagers at 2nd level, and children.
Here are some student comments about my art classes
“She is an excellent teacher. She demonstrates the method and then gives the students the freedom to try it themselves. She makes sure that each person gets her attention, advice and encouragement.”
“Aideen has all the skills of a super teacher.”
“Aideen is a talented artist who shares her expertise with her students in a non-judgemental, calm, patient way. No matter how inexperienced you are you are encouraged in her class.”
“Aideen has a professional approach to her work. Her lesson plans are clearly written, showing the various stages of the art project.”
“Aideen is very much aware of the importance of art appreciation. She also informs her classes regarding art exhibitions.”
I teach classes 5 mornings a week from 10am to 12pm and evening classes from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Please contact me or follow me on facebook/instagram for further details on week day classes, short courses on drawing and weekend workshops.
Art Classes Athenry run for 10 weeks at a cost of €140.
