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?

Spring Into Creativity

Join Helium Arts for our 6-week, artist-led Spring 2022 workshop series for ages 6-8 and 9-12! Taking place in Galway, Cork, Mallow, and Limerick, the workshops will give children living with long-term health conditions an opportunity to explore their creativity and meet others with similar life experiences.

The series will take place over 6 consecutive Saturdays from 5 March – 9 April (the Mallow workshop will take place from 5 March – 2 April). Workshops for children ages 6-8 will take place on Saturday mornings from 10:30am-11:30am, and workshops for older children ages 9-12 will take place on Saturday afternoons from 2:30pm-4pm.
