From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

The School of Practical Art and Design was founded through the exertions of the Committee of the Mechanics' Institute and Mr. J. A. Blake, who obtained the sanction of the Board of Trade. The School was opened on 1st October, 1852, with J. D. Croome as master.

It ceased after some years and was re-established in 1881, and is now under the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction, forming part of the Waterford Central Technical Institute.
