Testimonials

Read what our past students  have to say about their experience with the Art with Animation course at Abbeyleix FETC

“The new skills I gained at level 5 were beneficial to my practice, the animation, in particular, gave me structure and refinement to my process in art. That development has only continued to grow within the Level 6 programme.”
Kirsha Aldritt
Art and Animation Level 5 and Advanced Art Level 6 2018/2019
“These art courses helped me to build my confidence. I have grown as an artist and I have developed skills in all disciplines on the course. I feel ready now to move on to third level art college. I recommend the PLC structure to anyone!”
