Kids Arts & Crafts Classes in Kildare Town

Children aged 5-10 years work with a variety of materials from paper mache to acrylic paint and work on 2d and 3d projects focusing on colour, texture and construction using recycled materials i.e. plastics, paper, fabrics, wood and glass.

Kildare Arts & Crafts prepare a brand new portfolio for each term and strives to constantly Innovate their programs. Every term tackles a new theme and a set of learning objectives. They aim never to repeat the exact same activity twice.
