Summer arts workshops

It’s that time of year again, and the Laois County Council Summer Arts workshops are filling up fast.

But for budding young artists still interested, fear not, as there are still some places left.

There are a few spots for Art workshops with artist Conor Brennan running in St Francis School, Portlaoise from Tuesday July 22 to Thursday July 24 for children aged 7 to 12 from 2pm to 4pm. Over the three days the two hour workshops will include painting, drawing and clay sculpture.

Also in Portlaoise in St Francis School on the same dates from 11am to 1pm, budding young writers aged 12 to 15 will get the opportunity to explore creative writing with writer Ann O’Brien. Ann will give tips and will guide participants into writing their own stories and poems in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere.

All workshops run for two hours and over three days and cost €20. To request an application form contact: The Arts Office on 057 8664033/13 or email: or download programme from the website:
