The Ballinglen Arts Foundation

An Irish non-profit organisation located in the village of Ballycastle on the sea coast of North County Mayo in the Republic of Ireland.

Its programmes are designed to support serious artists making important work in ideal, inspiring conditions.

In addition, Ballinglen interacts with the general public through art exhibitions, school classes, print making classes, artists’ studio visits, gallery tours and the use of the art library.


The Master Classes Program

Ballinglen is designed for experienced artists who wish to study with internationally recognised artists/professors in the uniquely beautiful and powerful landscape of Northwest Mayo, Ireland.

Working off the success of this Fellowship Program, the Foundation has expanded its mission into a teaching program offering Master Classes taught by professors and recognised professional artists.
