Artform & Big Look
Artform School of Art is delighted to introduce you to Big Look: our partner platform hosting online content by Artform tutors.
Over the last years, Artform studio in Dunmore East has become a place of connection and empowerment for creative individuals and community. Through close collaboration with artist-tutors we have been hosting unique artist-led workshops in a variety of styles and media for all levels of skill, and we held numerous art events in our beautiful seaside location.
During the national health emergency 2022/21, when Artform studio was temporarily closed, we wanted to maintain our commitment to supporting the arts, enabling tutors to continue teaching and guest-artists to keep getting their guidance and enjoyment from art. So we partnered with Big Look Art so that you could connect with Artform tutors directly – from their studio to yours.
While Artform studio hosts again in-person workshops and masterclasses, we continue our collaboration with Big Look Art. Together, we have recently successfully piloted an online mentoring scheme for visual artists, kindly supported by The Arts Office, Waterford City and County Council https://www.artform.ie/waterford-artist-online-mentoring-scheme/, and we are working, in collaboration with Artform tutors, on bringing about new online art learning content and formats.

Artform Artists on Big Look
Frequently asked questions
Big Look is an online learning platform for Irish based artists. Unlike other art courses online in Ireland, Big Look brings together a range of established Irish based artists under a single, simple subscription service.
With Big Look membership, you will get access to a fast growing library of content and have the ability to interact with tutors through assignments.
We will be developing Big Look in the near future to integrate a one to one mentorship offering as well as a private social channel.
Are you looking to build on your existing skills, or are returning to art after a long time? Are you looking for an Irish based learning platform that will grow to meet your needs? Do you need a solution that allows you to work at your own pace according to your own schedule?
If the answer is ‘yes’ to these questions, then Big Look is probably going to be a good fit for you.
If you are looking for a weekly scheduled online live Zoom art class, there are alternatives which may suit you better, however if you enjoy the convenience of ‘on demand’ content and can work independently then Big Look is probably going to work for you.
Finally, if you are looking for focused feedback on your work and are looking to join a community of artists who will challenge you to explore new ways of working then, again Big Look is going to provide this to you.
Your monthly flat subscription fee includes all courses present and future. You can watch them at any time and change between them as often as you want.
In addition, new course content will be added to Big Look every month. All courses have featured assignments which allow you to submit work for feedback from the course tutor.
Yes! All of our courses incorporate an assignment or challenge. Students can respond by submitting their own work based on this assignment to the tutor. All submissions from students are assessed individually. Tutors will respond with either written or video based feedback. Please be aware that response times may differ from course to course based on demand.
We are planning in the near future to incorporate a booking solution for one to one mentorship with tutors for an additional one off fee as well as a private social channel, allowing students to engage with other students and tutors and share work and questions.
Sometimes you may want to pause your subscription for one or more months. Big Look can pause your subscription on request. You can request such pauses in your subscription as often as required and for as long or short a period as needed.
