Wicklow People (West Edition) - - ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE -

GOREY School of Art op­er­ates as a cen­tre of ex­cel­lence, of­fer­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised QQI qual­i­fi­ca­tions. With a 100% place­ment record for those stu­dents mak­ing col­lege ap­pli­ca­tions and most stu­dents gain­ing 600/600 marks in their port­fo­lio col­lege as­sess­ments.

Draw­ing, paint­ing, sculp­ture and print through an­i­ma­tion, model mak­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy and doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing are just a few ex­am­ples of the va­ri­ety of sub­ject ar­eas cov­ered in the school. The stu­dents are both school leavers and ma­ture stu­dents and this mix makes for a di­verse learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

The school has grown enor­mously over the last few years. It now houses North Wex­ford’s pre­mier art gallery and a state-ofthe-art 4K Dolby Vi­sion art house cin­ema

where our stu­dents get to ex­pe­ri­ence in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tions and films screen­ings through their time on our cour­ses. With this mas­sive de­vel­op­ment in fa­cil­i­ties, un­matched by most PLC cen­tres in Ire­land, our stu­dents are re­ceiv­ing the best pos­si­ble start

on their jour­ney into the boom­ing cre­ative in­dus­tries. Stu­dents have unique op­por­tu­ni­ties at Gorey School of Art to avail of ac­cess to the unique Pe­riph­ery

Space pro­gramme and the be­spoke cin­ema fa­cil­i­ties giv­ing them rel­e­vant real-world ex­pe­ri­ences as well as some of the coun­try’s top cre­ative PLC cour­ses.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are still open for this com­ing year and can be made at GSA.IE
