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
ABOUT

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.

Derek Lee,

Caroline is an amazing teacher and as a complete beginner any worries I had about starting art classes quickly disappeared. Classes are fun relaxing and very friendly and Caroline is always there to help.

Caroline O'toole Mural Foroige Review Im

Caroline O’ Toole,

Community Project.

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.

Toddlers Review Image.jpg

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.

After Study Review Image.jpg

Brian Dowling,

Leaving Cert Student.

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.
