Children’s Art Camp | Summer 2018
You asked, we listened. Extra dates added to the Art Academy Summer camps. 2nd-6th July 2018 for 5-8 years old. The 9th-13th dates sold out almost immediately and I know a few of you were disappointed.
There are 3 places remaining on the 9-13 years olds camp on July 16th – 20th. Get in touch: email@example.com
If you didn’t make it to art camp at the Academy, I have something for you.
Below are the step by step for drawing and painting a portrait of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Enjoy trying it at home and make sure and ask an adult to send me a picture of your work: firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be dying to see it. Have fun.
Need inspiration? Here are some paintings of Frida by the art camp artists

Happy pancake Tuesday.
Pancake Tuesday reminds us that Easter is on the way. I will host an Easter Art Camp this year in the Harold’s Cross Community Centre. I have popped a copy of the leaflet below. There are 12 spots on each course. Looking forward to seeing your artist there.
I know I’m an adult but I love, love, love the Late Late Toyshow hosted by Ryan Tubridy. So for the night that’s in it, I made a quick sketch of the Toyshow mug. They are on sale in Penneys, along with a full range of Toyshow merchandise. Raising funds for Temples Street Children’s Hospital and Our Lady’s Hospital in Crumlin. Drinking hot chocolate from a cute, owl mug watching the Toyshow is the nicest charity endeavour ever.
I used coloured pencils from Faber Castell and the Uniball gel pen in white. Oh also a Derwent charcoal pencil, which is fast becoming a favourite of mine. To create your own drawing check out the step by step process pics below:
“The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” – Leonardo Da VINCI
Art is not celebrated in Irish schools. Merely tolerated, viewed by the uninformed as a low level hobby. The art room often confined to some dusty corner of the school is only seen as useful when perhaps there a background that needs painting for a school play. Recent results from the Central Statistics Office however show, that this strategy is a grave mistake.
The survey concludes that; “On analysing the results, we found that students who studied Art along with Science or Maths performed better in the tests than those who did not study Art.” No news here, it has been obvious for over 500 years. Leonardo Da Vinci, the obvious poster child. You can check out the survey in the link below. Such facts beg the question if art is not the champion of your school, is your school a champion?
