    You don't need to have done art for the Leaving Cert but you will need a strong portfolio. There's a portfolio preparation course offered by Limerick School of Art & Design/LIT through the Lifelong Learning Department. This is run in the Autumn and Spring terms and is a part-time evening course. See http://www.lit.ie/adulteducation/art/9001.html I know other institutions also offer similar programmes but I heard this one is good as it's taught by the people who assess the portfolios.

    Most people take a year out and do a portfolio course. I did mine in Desmond College, Newcastle West, (currently a 4th year sculpture student) but Limerick Senior College also does courses.

    Should be, if you dedicate a lot of time to it.

    Just make sure to talk to tutors about a good format for it.
