Limerick School of Art & Design – Hotel Doolin

July & August 2018

Inspireland Boutique Creative Arts Summer Camps bring together some of Ireland’s most talented artists to mentor and nurture the creativity of children and teens aged 9 to 16 in what is one of the most magical creative experiences of their lives.

No two days or weeks are ever the same and students will get the chance to learn the basics of creative writing, graphic novels and comic art, claymation, set building, derelict dolls’ houses, steampunk model making, craft bookmaking, mask making, puppetry, shadow theatre, street art stencils, graffiti and silent movies.

Each week springs a completely new surprise. The only predictable thing about an Inspireland Summer Camp is that every single student will describe it as the best summer camp they have ever been on.
