Welcome to the Arthouse Meath's New Blog!!

Here you will find images from our studio, work in progress and interviews with the artists.
We are a centre of excellence, proudly celebrating the talents and supporting adults living with severe epilepsy and learning difficulties.

ARTHOUSE Meath is a charitable social enterprise based at Meath Epilepsy TrustARTHOUSE Meath centre of excellence creates and exhibits artworks for sale in printmaking and paintings which celebrate the skills and talents of adults with learning disabilities, many of whom live with severe epilepsy and physical disabilities.

Millions of adults across Britain live with learning difficulties. Many feel the work they create is deemed of little value and often considered redundant. 

ARTHOUSE Meath highly regards the skills and abilities of all its artists. The majority of ARTHOUSE Meath artists experience severe epilepsy. To reduce seizures for those living with epilepsy, it is important the brain is occupied, enthused and interested. This is part of the service we provide.

The freedom of expression and uninhibited creativity of the ARTHOUSE Meath artists makes for very desirable, engaging and honest artwork - as seen in 'outsider', 'raw' or 'native' art forms.

The work offers an insight of viewing the world differently, it has humour and warmth and will inspire us all.

We aim to give artists a sense of self-worth, and develop pride and confidence by showing the possibilities of what can be achieved.

100% of the profits go back into the charity for further development. Money from the work sold goes towards further project development and ARTHOUSE Meath artists all receive incentive payments.
