Frequently asked questions

What makes Big Look different?2020-11-01T23:12:35+00:00

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.

Is Big Look for me?2020-11-01T23:13:29+00:00

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.

Which courses are included with my subscription?2020-11-01T23:14:13+00:00
Do I get feedback or critiques?2020-11-01T23:15:36+00:00
Can I pause my subscription?2020-12-10T00:40:00+00:00

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.
