We are delighted with our success to date, with many students now pursuing careers in creative industries such as Architecture, Film, Theatre, Animation, Fine art, Graphics, Product Design and much more.
"I attended art grinds every week with Bernadine for two years as I was studying art as an extra subject for my leaving cert, Bernadine was really helpful and I always looked froward to art class, she made art history easy to remember, I got the points I wanted and am now studying film at university." John (leaving cert)
"We are delighted we sent our son to Bernadine, even through the pressure of exams he loved to go to his art grinds, he got on really well and was very pleased with his results." John (parent)
