About Us

An international creative college of excellence and a reputable industry leader, LA College of Creative Arts is at the forefront of providing academic training and professional creativity across locations including Dublin, Cork, Limerick and London.

After travelling extensively across the world studying every element of the make-up and beauty industry, LA founder Lorraine O’Neill returned home in 2005 and spotted an immediate gap in the market for a college that offered a superior level of training in the arts; and so LA College of Creative Arts was born.

With award winning courses in makeup, fashion and special effects, LA is leading the way in creative studies both nationally and internationally.

Dr Nonie Brennan

Mother of 1 Year HNC 2013 Graduate Andie Peirce

The Parent Point of View

When my daughter Andie told me that she wanted to move from Chicago to Dublin to study makeup artistry, it was hard for me to let her go, but I wanted her to follow her dream. During the months she spent at LA College of Creative Arts I watched from afar as she blossomed and grew into the person she was always meant to be. I was never more proud of her than the day she graduated, and I'm so happy that I supported her on this path and it is wonderful to see Andie working as a successful artist and starting life as an entrepreneur.
