Jason Arkles | A Figure Sculpting Masterclass! | August 2019

This August the Schoolhouse for Art was delighted to welcome master sculptor Jason Arkles to Enniskerry!


Jason, a highly regarded international sculptor, travelled from his adopted home of Florence to make his visit to our Schoolhouse for a five day ‘figure sculpting from life’ course.

The class size was limited to 10 students and each participant left our Life Room pretty exhausted, but with many new skills gleaned! Not to mention their own gorgeous reclining nude, ready to be fired!

We can’t wait to have Jason back for another brilliant course!

“Just completed a fabulous 5 day workshop with Florence based Sculptor Jason Arkles in the Schoolhouse for Art. The picturesque village of Enniskerry is host to the quaint 200 year old historic school building...once a local school along with lots of tourist attractions....the schoolhouseforart runs an eclectic mix of high calibre workshops including International teachers held in high regard and...A perfect opportunity to visit this beautiful part of the country...only 40 mins by public transport to Dublin’s city centre”
