Program Description

Cow House Studios is thrilled to offer FieldWorks, a hybrid residency and enrichment program designed to give students ages 18 to 22 an opportunity to make new work in a remarkable location while being challenged to approach their creative practice from new perspectives. During this 12-week multidisciplinary course, there is a particular focus on each participant's individual creative process, where one-on-one tutorials provide guidance for further research. In addition to time spent in the studio, there will be weekly organised trips to Dublin, the West and other points of interest in the Southeast region with a particular focus on artist-led initiatives and studio visits with accomplished Irish artists, designers and curators.

At Cow House Studios, above all else, we value process, the belief that a rigorous dedication to time spent in the studio yields exciting possibilities for new ideas and artworks. At the core of FieldWorks curriculum is meaningful, uninterrupted time in the studio and its beautiful surroundings making art. Days are punctuated by immediate feedback from instructors and peers, accelerating the creative process, whereby single days can yield an exceptional amount of productivity. This adherence to process rather than the finished result can be liberating but also essential to making connections that one might never dream up otherwise.


Most of our time is spent on the farm and in the surrounding area, indulging in the time and space to research and make art. This intensive studio time is complemented by trips; to Dublin, the West of Ireland and another in the Southeast region. Some of the places we may visit on trips include Irish Museum of Modern Art, Hugh Lane Art Gallery, Motherstank Station Gallery, Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, The Douglas Hyde Gallery, The National Museum of Ireland and Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College. Trips around the country may take us to The Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Dun Aonghus, Cape Clear Island and Three Castle Head among other fascinating sites.
