We have a couple of places left in Dundrum next week (25th of July); again in Dundrum (8th August) and Rathfarnham (15th August).

hi, i was wondering are you taking on any transition year work experience in tallaght or terenure?
Hi Amie, Just contact Sarah in the office with your details, your art experience, and interest in art/ teaching. She will fit you in our work experience programme if possible. Regards, Paul
I spoke with you earlier today.
I was wondering if it would be possible to organise a Celtic Mask party in Raheny on Saturday next (Sept 17) for a birthday for a 9 y/o girl – with 15 attending.
Hi – just a note to thank you for an absolutely fantastic birthday party hosted by Artzone for my 10 year old daughter attended by all her school pals. She chose the fashion theme and a superb teacher called Emma arrived at our house. She was a dream. She was so professional and set up the tables with all the art supplies for each child. She explained each step to them with undying patience, dedication and good humour and they waited on her every word. She guided and helped them to produce their own wonderful colourful masterpieces which were a joy to look at. The children loved her and were asking me when she would be back again. Alas, another year will have to pass but it certainly made this party a true success. Roll on next year – thanks again – Rachel Quish (Portmarnock)
Many thanks again for the glowing feedback Rachel. We have a big revamp of the party offering planned for the new year – should be even better! Paul
I have a 5 year old son Tom who loves drawing. Are there any spaces free in your Malahide class.
I just want to check and see if the camps published on the site for the summer that are closed are the camps due to take place this year, or are they last year’s camps and dates?
Hi Eveline, Our summer camp programme will not change radically, but we have not confirmed all the venues yet. You can book in advance with Sarah on 01 4063915. She will know if camps are definitely going ahead or not. We will publish a final list by the 3rd week of March. Regards, Paul
I’m 17, a student in 5th year and I’m in the middle of making my portfolio for college application.
Do you have any classes or easter/summer courses suitable for making portfolios?
Hi My daughter is 4and a half. I’m wondering if she could join the wednesday class in Na Fianna?
Hi Niamh, 5 – 7 years is just a guide age. Complete the booking form online (www.artzone.ie/bookings), or give us a quick call (01 4990614) and come along tomorrow for a trial art class in Na Fianna. Cheers, Paul
I’m enquiring about having a party for my daughter turning 9, date March 31st. We live in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow. We are interested in the fashion design art.

Hi I have a daughter who is almost 5 in Junior Infants and is crazy about anything to do with Art, just wondering did you have a venue close to Ashbourne Co. Meath? What times and days? anything on a Saturday? Thanks Anne Marie
Hi. I’m wondeing if you are still running summer art camps in Naas/Newbridge for 2012. If so, is there any availability for a 5 year old boy.
Hi Noelle, We are running our own art camp in Naas GAA Club on July 30th to August 3rd – it is open for booking on our website. The younger group will be taking on a Wild West themed portfolio full of art, craft stories and games. While we supply teachers and portfolios for the camps at the Riverbank in Newbridge we dont actually have anything to do with the organisation of the camps. We are still waiting for word of their plans for the summer. Regards, Paul

could you help?
Hi Amanda. Just give Sarah or Aisling a ring on 01 4990614 and they will sort everything to do with an Artzone Party for you. Regards, Paul
Hi, in regards to the comic book workshops, would you know of anything similar for adults…don’t think I fit with the 12+ Thanks Amel
Hi Amel, Check out http://dublincomicjam.blogspot.com/ We have only started the Comic Book Illustration Workshops as there wasnt anything available for Kids or Teenagers. Regards. Paul
When does the next sewing course begin? I am interested in attending any evening sewing class. Do I have to have my own sewing machine. I am a beginner.
Hi Karen, The sewing will start back early September (morning and evenings). We have the sewing machines so you just come along to the classes. Overtime you will take on your own patterns, materials and machine. If you complete the booking form online Sarah will confirm the exact start dates and times. Regards, Paul
Hi, would you take a 12 year old in the teen camp on 9th July or would she be out of her league?
Hi Jeanette. There wouldn’t be a problem once she is into fashion. We had Tweens and Teens together at Easter. The Teen Camp will obviously take on tougher projects that the Tween camp but most of our camp teens are 13 – 15. Our classes tend to cater for the older Teens. If you wish to book just email me direct firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a quick call on 01 4990614. Paul
I have two boys – 5 and 7.5 and was wondering if you have any places left in Leixlip for week of July 9th ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sorry Darragh, only just seeing your enquiry. There are places in Leixlip. Call down to Our Ladys and ask for Hugh. He will be happy to set you up for the rest of the week. We just charge a pro-rata rate for the days left in the camp. Regards, Paul
Hi, just wondering when the leixlip art class starts or when the next term starts, we live in celbridge but there doesnt seam to be a class available there for students outside of NKET.
Its a pity there is not another art class available in celbridge as there is a big demand for something like this.
Hi Roisin, It tends to take a big area to support a public art class so while we have classes in schools in Maynooth, Leixlip and Celbridge we only have public classes in Leixlip and Lucan. Leixlip starts back on Friday 14th September at 3.30pm. Is there after school art in you child’s school – if not we would be happy to discuss setting one up with whoever runs the after school programme. Many thanks, Paul
Will you be running the animation or film camp at Halloween
Hi Susan. We are running a horror animation camp at Artzone Studios this Halloween. Regards, Paul
I want to enquire if you can cater for a birthday party for 4yr old?
Hi Kasturi, Much as we would love to facilitate your party our teachers arent trained for Pre-Schoolers. We only really cater for Primary and Secondary School Children. Sorry. Paul
What’s the maximum number of kids you can have at a party?
Hi Sarah, 35 is the biggest party we have catered for at in the main studio but we have catered for 45 – 50 at the same time across two studios. Alternatively we can hire Taney Parish Centre which can cater for up to 60. Regards,
I have an 8yr old daughter Damaris who is very much interested in art and loves drawing. I would be glad if there is a space for her in Leixlip.
Hi Nikki, We have places in the older group in Our Lady’s Parish Centre, Leixlip on Fridays at 3.30. Just complete the booking form online http://www.artzone.ie/bookings or give us a quick call on 01 4063915 to register. We will set you up with a trial class for next Friday 9th November. Best wishes, Paul
I have a 4,5 years old daughter, she is newly started school. I want to learn, if there are suitable activities for her in Ratfarnham.Thank you
Hi Kader, We have suitable classes in Ballyroan Community Centre every Saturday morning at 10am or 11.15am. We also have a class in Artzone Studios (beside Rathfarnham Castle) on Thursday at 3pm. You are welcome to try any of these classes for a trial if you wish – book online http://www.artzone.ie/bookings or call 01 4063915. Paul, Artzone
Paul, I enlisted my 2 boys Sean and Liam Spain to Thursdays Raheny class at 3pm.. Going on advise of the art teacher my younger guy is not ready for the class so I may hold off til nxt year if that’s ok.. I didn’t make any payment for yesterday’s class as I wAnted to see how they got on. Any problems please email me..
Hi Karen, Sorry that the trial didnt work out for your younger son, but the teachers wouldnt give you that advice lightly – they are encouraged to keep their classes full. There will be no charge for the trial. We risk putting them off art if we force when they are not ready. Jenny recommended you try again in a couple of months – a couple of months can make a big difference at that age. Best regards, Paul
Hi I wanted to enquire about the options for 2 parties for 2 girls, 5th (for 24 girls) and 7th (with 34 girls), in the Blackrock/stillorgan or near there. Parties will be at the end of Feb. We will need to have the party not at home. Can you let me know what the options are.
Kind Regards Michelle
Hi Michelle. By far the best option would be our own Studio in Rathfarnham (beside the castle). We could also book Taney Parish Centre, Dundrum; Mount Merrion Community Centre or st Paul’s Parish Centre, Glenageary for you. Best regards, Paul
HI , I wondered if your new term was starting tomorrow (2nd Feb ’13) . I wonder if you have space for a 10 and a 12 year old for the 11.15 class ?
Many thanks Declan
Hi Declan. New terms have just started in all venues? There are places in the 11.15 classes. Which venue are you interested in – Malahide, Ballyroan or Firhouse? Regards, Paul
I have a little boy going on eight and was hoping to enrol him in the tallaght Saturday morning classes either time. Could you let me know if there is availability.
Hi Celine, There is room in both classes at the Victory Centre. The later class (11.15am) has more older boys in the 8-12 years group – but the 10am class is smaller. Let me know if you would like to book a trial for this Saturday (€5) – call 01 4990614; email email@example.com or book online http://www.artzone.ie/bookings/class-booking/. Best regards, Paul
Hi there, Can you tell me if the classes are running through half term? In other words will there be a class tomorrow, 12th Feb, in Zion 4.30-5.30? Thanks, Lucinda
Hi Lucinda. There are classes Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as the vast majority of schools are only taking the two days (Thursday and Friday off). No Artzone Classes Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I hope this suits you. Paul
Hi, have been looking for art classes in the area for my daughter aged 6. is there any space available in leixlip art class on a friday.
Hi Maura, There are places in the younger group (5 – 7 years) in Leixlip on Fridays at 3.30. The classes are run by qualified art teachers from NCAD. They research and produce new portfolios every term. Give us a quick call on 01 4990614 if you would like to book a trial class or you can complete the online booking form anytime http://www.artzone.ie/bookings/class-booking/.
Hi, I have a little boy just over four and half years. He loves drawing. I’d like to learn if there are suitable activities for him. Are there places left in Stillorgan or Blackrock venues? Can you please also tell me when the said session start?
Hi Yan, We only cater for Primary School Children or from the age of 5. The HSE regulations for Preschool children are entirely different. If your son is in Primary School there are places in Blackrock (Wednesday) or Dundrum (Thursday). I would be happy to set up a trial class for you – just call 01 4990614 to arrange. Cheers, Paul, Artzone
Hi I am interested in your Easter class in Raheny. I have 2 boys aged 6 and 41/2. WOuld my 41/2yr old be able to attend. He goes to Monti. 5 days/week. Thanks
Hi Sharon, In reality all 4.5 year olds are different. The real age issue is the staffing, processes and regulations. The HSE guidelines for pre-schoolers are very different from Primary school students and our staff aren’t trained to deal with them. We never go into a toilet with our students (Primary School Children), whereas Preschoolers are accompanied for H&S. If you think he is ready for this give us a call on 01 4990614. Best regards, Paul
My daughter would like to join the art zone at Firhouse. She is 9 years old. Please advise further details like availability, fees, etc. Please advise the time slots available
Hi Rakee, We would be happy to have your daughter join one of the Saturday classes in The Victory Centre (10am and 11.15am). There is a good mix of boys and girls in both Tween (8 – 12 years) classes. Give us a call on 01 4990614 to book a trial class, or book online anytime at http://www.artzone.ie/bookings/class-booking/. Regards,
Can you please tell me if you are running Artzone camps at Easter in Kilbride this year?
Hi Niamh, The closest Easter camp will be in Castleknock from 2nd – 5th of April. We are back in Kilbride this summer 1 – 5th July. Hope this works for you. Paul, Artzone
I run a preschool afterschool and summercamps in drumcondra area. I was wondering if u would be interested in running some courses at weekend or in the summer
Hi Nessa, At the moment we have classes in Na Fianna during the week, and a camp planned for the summer. If the numbers grow sufficiently we will look at a weekend class option and/ or additional camps. Thanks for contacting us. Best wishes, Paul, Artzone
I have a 5 year daughter who loves art and I was wondering do you have any summer camps or classes that I could take her to during the summer. I live in Navan Co. Meath. but wouldn’t mind having to travel 30 or 40 miles.
Hi Tony, We have a summer camp in the solstice art camp in Navan – Mon 22nd – Fri 26th July. There are places in that camp at the moment. We also have a camp in Kilbride National School, Clonee on Mon 1st to Fri 5th July; and Dunboyne Sen National School Mon 8th to Fri 12th July. Hope one of these suit. Best wishes, Paul
Hi, do you have any classes or opportunity for employment in the South? I am based in Cork and would love to work or indeed volunteer with your organisation. I have a Bachelors Degree in Art and Design and a Montessori Diploma,
Sorry Kathy. We have nothing that far south at the moment. We are hoping to expand through partnerships or franchise in the next 12 – 18 months. Best regards, Paul
Hi, can you tell me if there are spaces left in your summer camp in Navan in July. I have 2 children aged 7 ( 8 in September) and 9. Can they both attend the class for over 8′s?
Hi Fiona, We have places in the Navan Camp at the moment. Just put your son down as 8 and her will automatically go into the older group. The age is only a guide – the teachers work it all out on the first day anyway. You can book online anytime http://www.artzone.ie/bookings/camp-booking-form/ or call 01 4063915. Regards, Paul
I have a 7 year old (8 in Aug) would like to join your monday afternoon class in Naas. Is it a good time for her to start or is the class well advanced. Should I wait for the summer camps. Also because she hasnt taken any art classes before would she be better in 5-7 year old age group.
No problem Finola. Bring her along to the class in Naas GAA Club for 4.30 Mondays. There are four classes left this year. It would be a good opportunity to try the classes and build her confidence. The teachers will advise you which class she should join in September. Best regards, Paul
Hi Finola, The summer camp is also a fun way to try things out. The portfolios are designed to be fun, but there is lots of challenge and learning in each project. A week in the 5-7 year group might set you up nicely for the older group in September. Regards, Paul
