Introducing Abbey Art Studios


Abbey Art Studios is a working art studio and our motto is “Fun, Inspiring Creativity!”


Classes are available mornings, evenings and online. The atmosphere is friendly, informal and comfortable (the most important ingredient in the creative process – you have to feel ‘at home’ and relaxed).


The style of tutoring aims to celebrate the good points of everyone’s work, and develops paths for each individual to improve. Every artist is different, and therefore every artwork is different too. We provide a variety of courses to suit all lifestyles and levels of learning.

‘I have been a student of Susan’s for many years now. I took up Art when I retired, that was a wonderful decision. Painting (art) is so relaxing, you can do it in groups or on your own. I was very lucky Susan was my early tutor, as she is so encouraging and patient. She is a brilliant teacher and can see the different strengths in each student. Art has been a wonderful hobby during the cocooning. I would highly recommend Abbey Art Studios.’

Kate, Co. Louth

I thoroughly enjoyed the art classes I attended in Abbey Art Studios Co. Louth. There is a lovely warm and safe atmosphere created in the class that suits every level. The time flies with Susan’s experience and good humour. Abbey art studios opened a creative side in me I didn’t even know was there. It became therapeutic and I transferred the things I learned to other areas of my life. Thank you Susan for sharing your gift.
