BIG NEWS: We’re back. Reopening in August with an exciting program of Summer camps in the Harold’s Cross Community Centre (behind Kenilworth Motors). To protect my wonderful artists, you and your family, we will have social distancing safety protocol in place in compliance with the HSE and the HPSC
The 4 day Classical Art Summer Camps on offer this August are as follows:
I have a screen grab, pdf and word document of the application form at the end of the blog post for you. All art materials are supplied but each artist will use individual art packs as opposed to sharing art materials. I’ll take a small number of artists per camp, which is normal for Art Academy anyways but also for social distancing compliance this year. Each artist will have an art station 2 meters apart in the large hall.
I look forward to see you in August,
Enjoy learning about famous artists and creating your own masterpiece
Small group for more individual attention Social distancing safety protocol in place
All very welcome regardless of previous artistic experience

A fun art activity you can enjoy at home is casting your hand from alginate. Put a finger down if you have ever had an impression made of your teeth at the dentist? Seaweed based alginate is the product dentists use. You can cast your own hand like you can see in the cover shot or get creative and cast a couple holding hands and experiment with hand poses and gestures. Check out the video for a fun tutorial / art class. (materials list with links below)
Enjoy making hand casts of loved ones. It could be a lovely gift or keepsake. Would you like a tutorial on how to draw the hand cast you made?

Online art classes are coming soon the Art Academy. As a result of COVID_19 many of us are working from home. Some with children at home too. If you have a potential Picasso in your home, Art Academy will soon offer online art classes both live and prerecorded leaving you free to work from home while your artists create from the comfort of your own space. I’ll leave some Children’s YouTube video’s I have made at the end of this post for you to enjoy immediately.
If you fancy art classes yourself get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org I can create an offering for you too. I know I am grateful to have art in my life right now. It is a great way of managing the anxieties at this time. Less scary news watching and practicing a small bit of self care creating a piece of art is hugely beneficial. I’ll leave some YouTube video’s I have made at the end of this post for you to enjoy immediately.
