Master of Arts: Art Residency Program

Partnered with the New York Academy of Art, the Royal Hibernian Academy, and the University of Notre Dame's MA in art program, this month-long residency program has representation from all over the world. Through this program, students have the opportunity to be exposed to the Irish professional art scene, visit galleries throughout the country as well as experience local Irish art studios. The program helps to hone students' technical skills, provides studio practice, and gives them the opportunity to present their work to fellow art residents that culminates in a final public exhibition. Students also receive faculty advice and feedback on their work.

The award includes room and board, a cultural program that gives students insight into Irish history, politics and geography as well as the opportunity to explore the Irish landscape.
