Our teachers are highly trained practising artists who are committed to working with young people. Directors Frank Abruzzese and Rosie O’Gorman are the primary teachers along with two associate artists, who also live at the Cow House for the duration of the summer. We select these artists from a competitive field, bringing expert knowledge of a wide variety of media, which has included drawing, painting, photography, textiles, ceramics, installation, video and sculpture. Their participation provides a fresh enthusiasm, additional guidance, varied perspectives and approaches to the creative process, all necessary for generating a meaningful and engaging dialogue.
Additionally, local artists and curators frequent the studios during the programme, contributing their perspective and giving talks on their own work.
