Caroline Keane, Artist

My teaching philosophy is to

create an accessible platform for

all ages to engage with art and

art making.

I believe being exposed to and experiencing various art mediums and art processes develops important skill sets such as observation, expression and connection.Everyone in the art room contributes as a student, teacher and thinker.

My Classes

My classes provide a relaxed

and interactive atmosphere

which promotes individual

learning. Guiding students

through process led

approaches to art making

and learning valuable, visual art techniques.

Caroline O’ Toole,

I have worked with Caroline doing a mural in our Foroige club and she was an amazing teacher and excellent with our group of young people that ranged between the ages of 12 and 18.

Ellie Caroll,

Toddlers and Tea.

I don't know who enjoys this class more, myself or Ellie. Watching her splash around in the paint, interacting with other little budding artists is just fab. Meeting other parents there for the chats is just a lovely break during the week. Massive thumbs up.

I've decided to go to Art Classes to improve my techniques for school and Caroline's encouragement has really helped me build my confidence. She's a great teacher and motivator and has helped me massively in preparing for my exams.
