Are you thinking of applying to Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD)? How would you like to create your portfolio and have it scored before you go into your final leaving cert year?

LSAD are now offering a two-week summer programme titled "THINK DRAW MAKE" (Examining the creative processes), that helps you produce your portfolio in the creative environment of LSAD, with all of the teaching expertise, facilities and materials of the college available to you. 

What are the entry requirements?

There are no formal academic entry requirements. This programme is designed for Post-Junior Certificate students who may be interested in pursuing a career in Art & Design at third level. This course is also suitable for those who have completed the leaving certificate, but did not study Art as a Leaving Cert subject, and for mature applicants who may be interested in studying Art & Design at third level.
