I would highly recommend anyone, young or mature, to consider studying Art with Portfolio Preparation at Greenhills. The course is structured in such a way that one is constantly building one’s skills and expanding one’s knowledge. The Course Tutor offers excellent support, direction and instruction, making it a very inclusive and relaxed learning environment. The Course tutor is always on hand to offer guidance and encouragement. I was offered places in NCAD, TU Dublin and IADT because of the work I did on developing my portfolio. I would not have received these offers had I not completed the course.

A graduate of the Greenhills arts course, I progressed and completed four years studying visual communication in DIT. Greenhills gave me the opportunity and encouragement to experiment in all aspects of art and design. The Art Portfolio course had very hands on teacher-student interaction which helped me broaden my artistic ambitions.
