Part-time, Evening, Blended, On-line Programmes

Summer Courses at the World Famous School of Art & Design

Limerick School of Art & Design and Flexible Learning at LIT are delighted to offer three Summer Courses for 2018.



We are introducing a brand new and exciting course ‘Think Draw Make’ Portfolio Production which allows you not only to create a portfolio, but also to have it scored before your final leaving cert year.


This two-week course will allow you to produce a portfolio in the creative environment of the world famous Limerick School of Art & Design.


On completion of the programme, your portfolio will be marked and the score retained for when you make your application to LSAD.





We are also running an old favourite – the hugely popular Animation Summer School, which has been running successfully for a number of years. Our participants are aged from 16 years upwards and come from a wide variety of backgrounds and prior learning experiences.


Last year the participants experimented with a broad range of animation types; paper-cut, hand-drawn, ready-mades, sand animation, claymation.


They also learned about the early days of animation, the 12 principles of animation and the animation production pipeline. Lots of fun was had!

Finally, another favourite and extremely popular course that currently runs as a 10 Week evening course –

Painting Skills & Techniques Summer Course

This one week intensive course will introduce you to a variety of painting skills, materials and processes while developing your skills and confidence.


The tutor will be aiming to tailor the course to suit the need of the individual and work with people on an individual basis as much as possible.


All in all, this course should make for a fun yet relaxing week of painting and creativity.
