In July and August each year, we run a series of children's summer art camps at Kinsale Pottery and Art School. In 2014, each camp runs for four days (Wednesday off) and comprises two sessions per day:- 10.00-12.30 noon and 1.30-4.00pm. You can choose to send your children to mornings or afternoons, or for full days. Those staying the full day should bring a packed lunch. This year we are offering three weeks of summer camps, held in English.
The camps are designed with fun and art education in mind and include the widest range of activities from pottery to tie dye, theatre building to paper marbling. Classes of 10-12 children are taught by young professional artists and qualified teachers, many children come back every year to renew their enjoyment of the week.
Kinsale Pottery can recommend a range of local accommodation providers from simple B&B's to five star guest houses and hotels. Ask for a list when you book.
10.00-12.30pm or 1.30 to 4.00pm (half-day option)
10.00-12.30am Afternoons 1.30-4.00pm (full day option - bring a packed lunch)
Bogna Siegel O’Keeffe runs Bogna's Piano Studio next door to Kinsale Pottery, where she teaches one-to-one and group music lessons. Bogna is a native of Poland and living in Kinsale for the last 15 years. She is a piano teacher, music therapist and conducts “The Lidian” choir. The music camps cater for two age groups, one group 4-7 year olds for the weeks July 10-14th and August 7-11th, and an older group of 8-12 year olds for the week July 24-28th. These are half day camps for five mornings 10-1pm. The younger group of 5-7 year olds will be introduced to music through play. What this entails is that we will be doing some singing, ear training games, rhythm activities and of course piano playing. The older group will get a taste of composing and playing their songs on piano. We will also be singing and parents will be invited to join us on the last day of the camp to see their children perform.
