Register Now for Autumn Art Camps in Roscommon

Free creative art workshops to help children, aged 6-12, with lifelong physical health conditions live life to the full

Is your child living with a lifelong physical health condition? We know it can be lonely. That’s why we want to help you discover life ‘beyond the diagnosis’ and give your child the chance to shine.

Our Autumn art camps are run as three-day camps during the school mid-term break in November. Our workshops will give your child the space to be themselves, have fun, make new friends, learn new skills and get creative!  All workshops are delivered by professional artists.

“It was relaxing and allowed me to have time for myself while doing the art. I needed it a lot” (Child participant (aged 9-12))

“They let her be herself in a room of people just like her. It’s like she looked up and realised, ‘I’m not alone’.” (Mother of participant (aged 7))
