    Hi, just wondering if this location is still closed for Artzone

  3. Trish O'Donoghue says:


    My daughther is 4&half going to school in September and has been in pre school for the last year. She has a real interest in Art – would any of your summer camps be suitable? If not, will you be running any classes during the summer that would be suitable?



    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Trish, The 5 – 7 years for Juniors is just a guide. We get many 4.5 year olds joining the camps in July/ August before starting school in September. If they are used to a structured day, into art or with a friend or sibling they are usually fine. Just give us a quick call on 01 4990614 if you wish to discuss further or wish to book http://www.artzone.ie/bookings. Many thanks, Paul

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      That would be no problem Mona – the 10am class is the smaller of the two classes. Your daughter will be in the older group with Liam. There is no class this Saturday but you are welcome to join the following Saturday 9th November on a trial basis. Give the office a call on 0 4990614 or register online at http://www.artzone.ie/bookings. Best regards, Paul

    I would like to join my daughter 4 year old ( she started junior infants this year) in artzone, Could you please let me know when will the classes start for them , Let me know the information about classes available on Saturdays.


    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Anu, The classes have just started back – Ballyroan Community Centre on Saturdays at 10am or 11.15am; or Artzone Studios beside Rathfarnham Castle on Thursdays at 4.15 – 5.15. Call 01 4990614 to discuss best options. Regards, Paul

  9. Khadijah says:

    Can I pay per class?

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      I am afraid we require payment in advance. Our fees are set on a term (usually 8-weeks) basis. You can book a trial before committing to a full term and you can pay in two instalments if that helps. Regards, Paul
