Welcome to the Leitrim School of Art website!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions all classes that were running in our Drumshanbo Studio have been suspended until further notice. Classes and courses that had already started before lockdown will restart, picking up where they left off, when restrictions are lifted and it is safe to resume. There is no need for those that were already booked and attending these already started classes to rebook and we will advise participants of a restart date when this is known to us. All classes and courses that had been advertised but had not yet started have been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date. All bookings for these classes have been cancelled and refunded. We will re advertise these cancelled events and a new booking will be required. Please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know when these classes are rescheduled.
Leitrim School of Art operates from a well equipped studio in Drumshanbo Enterprise Centre. We are pleased to announce that new flagship studios for the School of Art will form an integral part of the Ballinamore Junction Project. The project is located on the site of the former junction of the Cavan – Leitrim railway which closed in 1959. The restoration of the station site and its conversion for use as an enterprise centre, arts, and youth hub was identified in 2018 by the local community as one of the key priorities for the regeneration of the Ballinamore area, as published in the Ballinamore Area Strategy – One Vision , One Plan, Co-ordinated Action. The Ballinamore Area Strategy resulted from an in-depth community wide consultation and engagement.
