Our live online art camps for kids and teens have achieved the impossible. They will not only keep your young artists focused and engaged in making art for four hours every day. They will often be making art for hours after class has finished, long into the evening. They are an absolute sensation.

For 8 to 18-year-olds, they take place between 10.30am and 3pm during the school holidays. So, camps take place during the Summer, Easter and Mid-Term breaks, (including a terrifying Halloween camp).

Lessons take place over Zoom, but they are not glued to screens for the whole of that time. Lessons are interspersed with break times and online interactive games. This is a place where young creatives can be themselves. A safe space where art and friendships come to be.

Tutorials will be led by a member of creative team. An artist will always be on hand to look at your work and give you one-to-one help and advice.

Online Members Area: The members area will offer our students a full year of unlimited access to an almost bottomless well of creative treasure. From here they will be able to replay all of the workshops from the live classes along with whole world of additional tutorials and downloadable, printable creative content, such as patterns and wallpapers, style guides, pictures, posters, graphics and anything in the world that we can think of.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT INSPIRELAND

  • Huge congratulations on pulling off this outstanding camp. I can tell from your email and know from watching my kids online all week, that a huge effort went into it from everyone involved. They absolutely loved it and it was fantastic to see them so engaged all week. The teachers were wonderful, and we were so glad to be a part of it. A job very well done, and I will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen. Best of luck with it all, you deserve much success! Please let us know if you are doing more camps.

  • He said it was the best camp he has ever been on. He spent this evening painting his mask. He has asked me to take him to buy more art materials so he can make more comics ( his favourite thing!) and all this from a kid who was very disheartened with his lowish grade In his summer art exam in school. So thank you for reminding him that art is not just about drawing your cat but it is also about to be creative and finding your own voice in your art. You all played a blinder.
    Sheena, Dublin
  • It sounds like I will be just one more person in a long line telling you how amazing last week was for the girls. I was a bit sceptical about the long zoom days, but they really worked, as did the balance of activities, awesome staff, and the atmosphere of connection and shared creativity you all created for the group. Even I was a little sad when the week ended, as I knew that walking through the kitchen would no longer bring the same flood of new surprises, stories, excitement, images and ideas. Hearing the kids say goodbye to their new friends at the end of the week was really, well, inspiring (and just a little emotional!)

  • The teachers were so friendly and the projects really creative. She made such great art and loved trying out animation. Amazing she could do all this from the kitchen table. She’s been enjoying the online content too. She is still busy as we speak, making a new background for her animation character. Well done to all.
    Odile, Dublin
  • My 11-year-old son sat happily for 4 hours straight through – a record!! It was so well designed! Fabulous materials, inventive approach with breaks factored in while their creations were drying or so that everyone could have a chat. I have already recommended your camp to friends. Please pass on massive thanks from Luke & myself to the whole team for their inspirational work.
    Amanda, Dublin
  • My daughter LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the camp! Thank you so much for making it happen with all the restrictions. So appreciate all the efforts. We are looking forward to the additional tutorials so she can learn more and would be happy to pay a monthly fee to access more? She really feels like she is part of a special ‘art club’ now and will continue her learning and be inspired, and keep connected to the friends on the course. That is truly magical. I would love her to keep learning!
