Tutors include:
Mauricio Figueroa, Marina Healy, Elmarie Collins, Louise Spokes and Keeva O'Shea

Our curriculum consists of experimenting with six strands. Each strand represents a medium for developing the child's expressive abilities. These strands are drawing, paint and colour, print, clay, 3D work, jewelry making and textiles.

As well as being great fun our classes emphasizes three starting points for the child's art activities:
- the child's own experience
- the child's imagination
- the child's observations

Students will be encouraged to engage with the current works in the gallery at Galway Arts Centre.  Through group conversations the child will develop sensitivity to visual elements, and will begin to use these elements purposefully in his/her own art-making. The process of making art will be highlighted as being as valuable as the final outcome.

Child protection procedures are in place and we follow the Arts Council of Ireland's best practice for photographing children.
