The Activities

We do a wide variety of art and craft activities including painting, pottery, sketching, beadwork, woodwork, modelling, enamelling, weaving, paper crafts, sculpture, printing, etc according to the student’s age, ability and interests.

Pine Forest Art Centre has been developing and delivering fun and instructive art and craft activities for children and young people for over 40 years and is well known to generations of Dublin and visiting children. Children are divided into groups of their own age and are outdoors whenever the weather and the activity permit. They go on a mountain/forest walk at lunch break.

JOIN OUR MAILING LIST "The Pine Forest Art Centre extracted my children from the 'burbs for several years. It was easy to get them to the bus and when they returned in the evening they were full of fresh air and healthily tired. In addition they had achieved something every day, and at the end of the week came home with a bursting boxfull of paintings and crafted goodies. Knowing that they were with qualified teachers and given creative space with strong parameters was a great comfort. I can't recommend the Pine Forest highly enough!"
