    Hi there

    I presume the camps have the same age structure as the classes in general (ie from 5 up) – I ask as I have a four year old who loves art and making things – I fully understand if there is an age restriction, just checking in case it is different for the camps….

    • says:

      Hi Amisha, We do have places in Sandymount. I do have to point out that our processes and portfolios are designed for Primary School Children. The HSE Guidelines for PreSchoolers are very different – for example we do not accompany them to the toilet etc. Best regards, Paul

  17. Cliona says:


    I was wondering about your film courses in rathfarnham.
    I got a text to say that there was still a few places left but when I go to the above button, where it says click here to view more information on it, it won’t work.

    Can someone let me know what the children do in the course and how much it is?


    • says:

      Hi Cliona, We have a few places left. Here is the link for more details We are working with Tailored Films to run a camp suitable for this younger age group. They are young, but highly qualified and experienced Tutors who make short films for a living. Let me know if you need any further info. Best regards, Paul

  18. Enrika says:

    Hi, Paul,
    I have a 6 year old girl and she would like to attend Your summer camp in August, in Naas GAA from 19 of August. Could You send an Application form and other information, please.

    Thank You in advance,

  19. Renata says:

    The Red Stables Art Centre in Raheny, it’s any free places left for 6th-9th August , for 7 years old boy, Anthony was doing art classes before and he love to do summer camp too…
    Looking for to hear from you.

    • says:

      Hi Renata, I am really sorry but that camp is fully booked and paid. We have another camp in the area on 19th August (Donnycarney) if that is any good to you. Best regards, Paul

  20. Donna says:

    Just wondering if there is availability in Donnycarney week of 19th August? Thanks.

  21. Marion Gibbons says:

    Is it possible to attend a camp for 2 days, rather than the whole week?

    • says:

      Sorry Marion, The camps work on a 5-day portfolio generally. Children start projects early in the week that need to dry or set, and they finish them later in the week. They could miss one day and catch up but they wouldn’t get enough started and finished in two days to make it worth their while. Best regards, Paul

  22. Antonia Danaher says:

    Hi there, can you let me know about availability for the camp in Greystones. My daughter will be 8 in Aug.

  27. Sandra says:

    Hello. Am looking for an art summer camp for a 6 yr old girl in August. Cannot see one on the list, but I think the payment part allows for it, so perhaps it is not up yet.
    I do see one in Raheny Red Stables, but that venue is not good for a small child. Many thanks, Sandra

    • says:

      Hi Sandra, I cant see which venue you are referring to. Best regards, Paul

    • says:

      Hi Sandra, Just to let you know we taken action to deal with issues at the Red Stables. We have moved rooms at the Red Stables to a larger room with heating control. We have arranged access to an enclosed green area for breaks and games. We have also increased the teacher: pupil ratio so that we can organise regular supervised trips to the toilets across the courtyard. We have something running every week at the Red Stables during the summer. We are also talking to Clontarf Rugby Club about hosting future camps. Best regards, Paul

    Hi all at artzone hope you are well.
    My name is Ailbhe O’Connor. I am currently a 1styr student on NCAD’s masters in (Art) Education programme. I am writing to you today as I am looking for teaching work during the summer months. I have much classroom experience with the 11-18 age group and have previously spent time teaching photography, film and art at Rockfort Summer camp, Deansgrange. My background is a varied one. In 2011 I completed a BA in visual art practice from the Institute of Art and Design technology and since then have been working in film&editing, administration and marketing work, before deciding to return to education to pursue a career in teaching. If you have any positions opening for which you think may be suitable, please do keep me in mind and I will forward on a CV.

    Many Thanks.
    Ailbhe O’Connor.
