Explore your artistic side with professional workshops ranging from photography to found art and upcycling to performance, creative writing, wood-carving, water-color painting, calligraphy and charcoal drawing. With our expert tutors, these workshops will provide you with a chance to try your hand at many artistic disciplines and create tangible takeaways from your time in Ireland.

You will have a chance to create a body of work that is unique to you, fun and tangible. It will act as a takeaway from your time in Ireland and may be used as a stepping stone onto other art programs or simply as a vehicle to further develop your interest in a particular area of the arts. 

At the end of the Arts and Culture Program gappers will co-host with local-artists, their own art exhibition, ‘La Cheile Art Expo’. La Cheile means ‘together’ in Irish, and this expo is all about bringing the local community together for an evening of sharing art, stories, music, food and laughs. This is not your average art expo - It's fun, light-hearted and open to all!

It is a project, a collection of work and a snapshot of a time and place in your life through the lens of art.
