Art is awesome- Especially up a mountain!!
What child doesn’t love messing about with paint, making cool stuff, meeting fairies and exploring the great outdoors? The Pine Forest Art Centre is where the magical worlds of art and nature come together- often with spectacular results.
Every Child is an artist and for many the Pine Forest Art Centre is the place that lights the spark. We run a variety of courses throughout the year: Mid Term, Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas. Arty Party Birthday Events are a big hit with all ages. Our Parent and Child Days, where families work together to produce multiple mini masterpieces, are also hugely popular.
School – Friendly
Schools love to visit us here in the Dublin Mountains. They know the children are safe, supervised at all times and fully immersed in their artistic creations. Typically, the children will work in a variety of mediums such as clay, foam and a mouldable multi-coloured material called Model Magic. Each child takes home three works of art to remind them of their day. Other highlights include a beautiful nature walk; spotting frogs, newts and tadpoles by the pond; letting off steam in the playground and maybe even a trip to the fairy forest in search of the little people.
Older students preparing for college benefit greatly from our second level and portfolio preparation courses. These are designed as a gateway to further education.
What a View!
Perched on the side of the Glencullen Valley, high in the Dublin Mountains, the Pine Forest Art Centre enjoys a truly spectacular setting. Approximately two kilometres from Glencullen Village and Johnny Fox’s Pub, the centre has a spacious car park which can easily accommodate tour buses.
Climb the Mountain!
At the end of the day, our staff believe art works best when it’s fun. Come and see us. We promise to put a smile on your face.
