WHY CARLOW?

Carlow's current and future teachers are taught to present the study and creation of art in exciting and significant ways. Our approach to teaching art is not to have your students just follow an assignment or perfect a technique, but to find a reason to make art that is meaningful to them.

Challenging? Yes. Ready to start? Let's go.
