Virtual Information Session

We try our best to describe our gap year program FieldWorks on the pages here but know nothing is quite like having a face to face meeting. That’s not easy when we’re based here in Ireland, and most of our students come from countries around the world. To expand our reach and make our time accessible to a larger audience, we schedule a series of Zoom meetings in January, February, and March each year. These are biweekly information sessions where Cow House Co-Directors Rosie O’Gorman and Frank Abruzzese outline the program in their own words and answer any questions you might have. These sessions are a great opportunity to not only have your questions answered but hear questions from others as well.

Topics to be covered include our studios’ history and how Cow House has evolved over the years. We speak about our ethos, approach to teaching, and talk about the art we admire. We go into detail about the day to day activities at the studio and how our days change over the course of the program. We’ll talk about the excursions that take us all over the country, the artists we meet, and the types of lessons our students can expect. We take some time to address scholarship and financial aid opportunities for our students, answering questions prospective students might have about the application process. Lastly, we’ll go over portfolio development, what you’ll need to prepare for your application and how it will develop further during your time with us.

We aim to make these sessions informative and brief. We know people have busy schedules, so our presentation is 10 minutes, leaving an additional 20 minutes for questions. In total, we cap the entire session at 30 minutes. We do hope you’ll join us for one of our sessions. All are welcome, prospective students, parents, and educators alike. If you would like an invitation, please fill out the form and you’ll receive an email from us shortly.
