Camps, Courses, School Tours & Activities



The Beautiful Mountain and Forest Landscape surrounding the Art Centre in the Dublin Mountains forms the perfect natural environment for Art and Craft Courses. As this is the children’s holiday time/ special event, emphasis is placed on making these creative courses enjoyable as well as instructive.

Students are out of doors in the fresh air, sketching, going on forest trails, collecting natural materials for craft work, etc, whenever the weather and activity permit. During breaks/walks, as at all times, the students are under careful supervision.
