a network of painting practitioners based in NCAD
painttube is a research group of staff and post graduate students at the National College of Art and Design, in Dublin, who are engaged and interested in Painting within contemporary fine art practice. painttube is connected to an expanding network of Irish and International painting groups delivering events that explore painting in contemporary visual arts practice.
