Wicklow artist Paul Flynn working in collaboration with Glencullen artist Conleth Gent have scooped The New Ireland Assurance Award for their sculpture World Waves at the Sculpture in Context exhibition.
“In my years of teaching art, there are two things that stand out as vital to being a successful artist – learning to see – and loosening up. It is these two qualities that make your art stand out – a fresh, original vision, and a confident, relaxed approach. Sketching is a vital part of my own artistic practise, keeping my senses alert and attentive to my surroundings. Our seeing, our observation, our understanding of proportion, perspective, light and shade, colour and form – all are strengthened in the process. We grow as artists”
We are delighted to announce two new classes at the Schoolhouse for Art this autumn and welcome two new teachers !!
Starting in October we will be running a Photography class with Paddy Maddock. We will also run our first one day Bookbinding workshop on the 8th of October with Caroline Byrne.

Damien Flood graduated with a BA in Painting from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology, Dublin in 2003. In 2008 he graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, with a MFA, Painting. His work is grounded in early writings on philosophy, theology, alchemy and the natural sciences and explores the mutability of ‘reality’ and language.
