Art Classes for Kids, and Teenagers too at Galway Art School
About art classes for children
Art classes for kids are about so much more than entertaining your children for a couple of hours!
As art teachers we are very aware of how children's personality development can benefit from art classes:
Art Classes for children throughout the school year!
Art and crafts for kids in our kid's art club is on offer throughout the primary school year.
Our kids art classes do not require any previous skills, the only requirement is enthusiasm! We charge per block of six classes. If you miss the start of a block of six classes, don't worry, you can join in anyway and pay for the remainder of the six.
Every block of six sessions contains one extended project using any of the following techniques typically in different combinations: drawing with different materials, painting with different types of paint, modelling, sculpture, textiles, collage, printmaking, construction. There will also be some seasonal craft activities. Our art lesson match and in places exceed the visual art curriculum.
We may offer art summer camps for children. Please check the website closer to the time for updates.
To see more kids art work from our classes, please visit our FB page and look under photos.

"I love art classes at Galway Art School. Susanna is really nice and a great teacher. I get to try lots of different things like drawing, painting, using ink, paper mache, printmaking, clay. I can't wait to see what we'll do next!"
Ciara, age 8
"Our class does a variety of art activities and all are really fun. I enjoy working with my hands and really like the sculpting we do with a compound material that is made from recycled (paper) products and other materials. I also enjoy learning about the history of art. If you're looking for something fun and want to learn more about art, in addition to painting and drawing, this is the class for you."
Maddie age 11
"It is great, I am learning a lot of new stuff and I am doing some cool pictures. We use a lot of different materials and everyone is very friendly, I love it!"
