Pine Forest Art Centre

Pine Forest Art Centre

Set in the Dublin Mountains the Pine Forest Art Centre, surrounded by Woods and Streams, have been running Art Courses for children and young people for over thirty years.

The courses incorporate a lot of outdoor Art Activities allowing students to take advantage of the fresh air and natural environment.

Each student participates in a wide variety of Art and Craft Activities including Pottery, Painting and Collage to mention but a few.

They are divided into groups of their own age during classes and at breaktimes there are mountain walks and forest trails. There is a Private Bus service on the Summer Courses from various south side pick up points.

Junior Courses

The Junior age group child (5 - 12 years old) participates in a wide variety of Art and Craft activities such as pottery, painting, drawing, modelling, woodwork, enamelling, rush work, bead work, and many many more. Depending on the age, ability and interests of the student, the types of activities vary.

The Senior age group student (13 - 16 years old) is more focused in their activities; these include drawing, oil and water colour painting, design, sculpture, pottery, enamelling and many other crafts.
