Department of Yeats Academy of Art, Design & Architecture

Welcome to the Department of Yeats Academy of Art, Design & Architecture

In the Department of Art and Design, we are acutely aware of the creativity the North-West landscape cultivates and we wish to harness that cultural, historical and social power to produce students who are confident in their artistic work to share it on a national and global scale.

The YAADA Yearbook 2020 can be viewed here:

At IT Sligo, we believe in the power of art and design to not only move people but as a vital component to our economic and societal development. We support Project Ireland 2040’s vision to have a “creative, innovative and culturally attuned society in our region, so that people, businesses and communities are equipped to further both our national economic output and our artistic endeavour.”

What type of student are you?

A out-of-the-box thinker who uses their creative skills to engage with their surroundings, whether it be words, art, design or acting. You will be able to see the creativity in everything and you will understand having the fluidity and ability to draw inspiration from the everyday is a vital skill.
