Frequently asked questions

  • What makes Big Look different?

    Big Look is an online membership learning platform for Irish based artists. Unlike other art courses online in Ireland, Big Look brings together a range of established Irish based artists under a single, simple subscription service.

    With Big Look membership, you will get access to a fast growing library of content and have the ability to interact with tutors through assignments.

    We will be developing Big Look in the near future to integrate a one to one mentorship offering as well as a private social channel.

  • Is Big Look for me?

    Are you looking to build on your existing skills, or are returning to art after a long time? Are you looking for an Irish based learning platform that will grow to meet your needs? Do you need a solution that allows you to work at your own pace according to your own schedule?

    If the answer is 'yes' to these questions, then Big Look is probably going to be a good fit for you.

    If you are looking for a weekly scheduled online live Zoom art class, there are alternatives which may suit you better, however if you enjoy the convenience of 'on demand' content and can work independently then Big Look is probably going to work for you.

    Finally, if you are looking for focused feedback on your work and are looking to join a community of artists who will challenge you to explore new ways of working then, again Big Look is going to provide this to you.

  • What is included in the free 7 day trial?

    With the free 7 day trial, you have access to all course content on Big Look without restrictions. While you may submit work for feedback, these will only be reviewed by our tutors after the 7 day period and once the first membership payment has been processed. Trial members will also get access to our Private Community Channel at that point.

  • What is included with my membership subscription?

    With your monthly membership subscription you get access to all courses present and future. You can watch them at any time and change between them as often as you want.

    New course content is added to Big Look every month. All courses have featured assignments which allow paying members to submit work for feedback from the course tutor.

    Members also get access to our Private Community Channel where you will be able to access more content and keep up to date with latest announcements.

  • Can I pause my subscription?

    Sometimes you may want to pause your subscription for one or more months. We are more than happy to pause subscriptions on request.

    You can request such pauses in subscription as required and for as long or short a period as needed. Once your account is paused you will no longer have access to Big Look content. You will then regain access to the content at the end of your pause period.

  • How does the free trial work?

    We offer a 7 day free trial that allow you to access all courses on Big Look. This allows you time to evaluate if Big Look meets your needs before your first monthly subscription payment is paid. Within this 7 days you have the ability to withdraw at any time by cancelling your account.

  • Do I get feedback or critiques?

    Yes! All our paying members can avail of course assignment or challenges. You can respond by submitting their own work to the tutor. All submissions are assessed individually. Tutors will respond with either written or video based feedback. Please be aware that response times may differ from course to course based on demand.

    Please note, this feature is not available to free trial users.
