CIT Crawford College of Art & Design

CIT Crawford College of Art & Design (CCAD) is a vibrant multi-campus College, which has been providing education in the arts for over 200 years. Crawford graduates are among Ireland’s top artists, designers, media designers and communicators, art therapists and art educationalists. Whether you are interested in Fine Art or Contemporary Applied Art, Visual Communications or Multimedia or hoping to do postgraduate study in Art Therapy, Art & Design Education, Art & Process, Elearning Design and Development, Journalism or Public Relations with New Media – we have something for you.


The vibrant city of Cork – known as the City of Festivals - is home to national and international art galleries, the National Sculpture Factory, a range of artist-led initiatives such as Cork Printmakers, the Backwater Artists Group and the Guesthouse, and of course an ideal place to work in the creative industries.

Whatever your creative aspirations – we can support you on your journey to finding your individual unique voice. At the Crawford, your education is led by you.

The College comprises four distinct departments as follows:

 

There are extensive links with industry and external arts organisations, a thriving visiting lecturer programme, and a strong focus on the development of individual creativity.

CCAD also has its own exhibition space at Wandesford Quay Gallery and this venue has already established itself as an intersection point between the college and the wider artistic community.
