Paint and Sparkle

 

SECOND WEEK CANCELLED

It is with sadness that I have decided to cancel the second week of the summer camp…

With Corona numbers not looking great at the moment and the young ones being more at risk, I prefer to not create an environment where children would be indoors together. I had chosen the venue for the spacious space, ventilation and open doors, but it is still indoors.

I know there will be disappointments for the young budding artists, and I understand this could be inconvenient for you, but I believe this is the right thing to do at this time.

I am really hoping that things will improve enough to be able to hold a camp around Halloween, I will be looking into different possibilities…

Dear Parent…!

I am super excited to be planning a sparkly new summer camp for the creative boys and girls aged 5-9 in the Killarney area.

If your child loves to draw, paint, cut, glue and get their fingers messy while using their imagination, this might be the perfect week for them…!

The Paint and ✨Sparkle Art Camp will be from 10:00am in the morning until 1:00pm in the afternoon for five days.

Dates: 🌟BOTH DATES ARE NOW FULL…!🌟

Wednesday – Flowers & Bugs
Thursday – Rainforest & Jungle

OUR LOCATION

We are very lucky to have secured the Fossa Community Centre for our summer camp. The centre is just behind the old church which is right next to Fossa National school. Our room is right next to the Fossa Preschool’s room. There is ample parking for safe drop off and collection, the room is spacious and bright, and the back door opens to the Fossa Community Playground, which we can use for a little break after our lunch.

Outside the drop off and collection times, the front door will be closed for the children’s safety.

 

CLOTHING

Your child will be immersed in an art-making camp experience, using materials in a safe and creative manner. Aprons will be provided, but remember that clothes can still get a little splash of glue or paint…! A light jacket is also a good idea depending on the weather, as we will be able to use the outdoor playground for a few minutes…

 

PAYMENT

Payment will be taken in full on the first day of the camp.

 

SOME COVID RELATED DETAILS…

Our room is big, bright and airy, with a ventilation system that keeps the air moving. Weather allowing, the back door will also be kept open a little.

We would kindly ask you parents and guardians to wear a mask as you come and bring or collect your child. I as the tutor will be wearing my mask the whole time.

 

A WORD ABOUT ME!

As some of you will know, I am an artist and owner of a jewellery business living in Killarney for 20 years. In this time I have been teaching art classes at night in the Community College for 14 years, have held several arts&crafts workshops in schools, nursing homes and in special needs day centres.

In 2018 I also started to run an after school Art Club in Holy Cross Mercy, which has been very popular and which I cannot wait to start again in September after the forced Covid break.

As a mother myself, I totally understand that you want to leave your child with a trustworthy and dependable adult! I am a mom of two young boys aged 5 and 8 who will also be part of the camp and have been great little assistants.

We are looking forward to meet all the young creative people!
