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.

LA is now delighted to announce that a percentage of all course fees will go towards The Beyond Skin Foundation, a charity founded by Lorraine O'Neill in conjunction with The Hope Foundation that aims to allow underprivileged women in India to become self sufficient through skills based training.

LA College is delighted to announce the launch of a full Summer Programme in our newly allocated studios in central London! Find out More
