Free Spring 2022 Workshop in Cork City for Ages 9-12

Arts to Make You Feel Better

Do you know a child living with a long-term health condition who would benefit from exploring their creativity, having fun and building friendships in a safe and stimulating environment?

Then Helium Arts’ spring workshop series might be right for you!

About the Workshop

In this Spring workshop series we will revel in the world of colour, form and pattern through experimenting and constructing with mixed media. We will investigate the natural world around us and create using new and found materials, learning artistic techniques and inventing our own. By trusting our intuition and each other, let’s step into a world of possibilities and create together!
