    Are you running any summer camps in Navan this year ??

    • says:

      We are planning a summer art camp in The Solstice from Monday 14th to Friday 8th July. Best regards, Paul

      • Susan Sweeney says:

        Is Stop Motion Animation Camp suitable for boys who are 16 yrs just finished 3rd year? Or can you suggest another programme for the summer months?

        • says:

          Hi Susan, The course itself is run like a Junior Cert Project. 16 would be the oldest in the camp. We had two 16 year olds last year. As the groups are split up into working groups of 4/5 students so they were fine working with other 14/ 15 year olds, but there will be students as young as 9/10 years there also. Best regards, Paul

      Hi Tanya, The camp is run by our own qualified Art Teachers. It would suit Boys or Girls (age 9+ years). The programme runs from 10am – 2pm each day. The Fees are 1st Child – €140, 2nd Sibling – €120; 3rd – €100 … (these fees cover ALL the equipment). Best regards, Paul

      Hi Sinead, The camp in the Solstice Art Centre is a general visual arts camp – really cool portfolios (Beat on the Street Art for 8 – 12 years & Princesses, Knights & Dragons for 5 – 7 years). Sample portfolios on our Facebook page . The Animation camps are running in Rathfarnham and Raheny. Best regards, Paul

    • says:

      Hi Linda, Each camp focuses on different stages of the process, but all start with a blank sheet and end with a movie show. Some students will be on their 4th/ 5th camp at this stage. The weekly classes work more slowly through each stage of the process. Best regards, Paul

      Sincere apologies Jennifer. Your comment has only just come through to us with 20 others this morning. I am afraid that camp was booked out. We are planning to run many more specialist camps in venues such as Castleknock next year to meet the obvious demand. Regards, Paul

    We are a Spanish family that wants to visit Dublin this summer. At the same time we would like our daughters attend to the Stop Motion Animation Camps. They are 11th and 14th years old, and they speak English, but in a low level. I wonder if there will be any problem to follow the classes.
    Could you tell me centres, dates and rates for 2016?
