Great art class for kds

My 4 kids have all had art classes with Vanessa and have absolutely loved them, My 5 year is currently doing the after school classes in Straffan and can’t wait for Wednesday art day!

Kids not only do art projects but learn about the different aspects of art. Highly recommend. Thanks Vanessa!

by Orla on The Craft Corner

My son has really enjoyed the after school art classes in Straffan. Vanessa and Grainne are hugely enthusiastic and patient.

The classes are well organised and the children are given the opportunity to develop their interest in art through the use of various mediums in a nice relaxed environment.

We will definitely be returning!

My son has Dyspaxia which affects the fine motor skills and gross motor skills amongst other area's so it's important for him to learn the skills that arts and Crafts provides, he's currently in 3rd class but has been going to the classes after school since senior infants, Vanessa is wonderful with him and the other kids, he really enjoys the class , I would highly recommend @Thecraftcorner and Vanessa , thanks for everything over the past year, look forward to seeing you in the class when school returns 😁

Another super camp!

My 2 girls did Vanessa’s Easter art camp last week and thoroughly enjoyed it once again! So well organized and lots of fun was had by all! Such a beautiful setting in Castletown House too. Such lucky kiddies. Well done and huge thanks Vanessa & Grainne x

Corporate Family Day

 

I hired Vanessa and her team for a large corporate client's family day in Tayto Park. All the children seemed to have a great time doing arts 'n' crafts. Vanessa had some lovely alternatives to what you usually find at craft tables and was completely self-sufficient. Nothing left over as they cleaned up the entire area afterwards. Would recommend for any corporate family events !

I would highly recommend this Art & Crafts Camp! Vanessa is just amazing and my kids absolutely loved it! It was the first time my daughter did a camp and she settled in so well! They had so much fun and were so happy going in and delighted coming home with their creations! They still talk about the camp! I will definitely be sending them again! Thank you Vanessa x

Vanessa, Thank you so much for a fantastic Craft Party today. They all loved it… very proud of their work! It was the most relaxing & easiest party I have had…all I had to do was feed them. They were fully engrossed in their work the rest of the time. There was great feedback from everyone. Just brilliant!!!!!! Thank you

My two girls aged 9 and 7 Ava and Mia thoroughly enjoyed the art camp in Castletown House last week in Celbridge. They couldn't wait to go each day and did amazing art work through the week. They were delighted with their gift bag and personal little note at the end. would highly recommend this art camp and will definitely book next year again.

I have received great feedback from all the mothers about the party, all the kids loved it and were raving about it. Thanks a million for doing it and making it stress free for us, we will highly recommend you.

My 8yr old grandaughter Kaitlyn had a fun & creative week in the Celbridge camp this year which was located in the converted stables of Castletown House. It was her 4th year attending and of all the various summer camps she goes to, I think this is one of her favourites. Apart from the gorgeous creations and artwork she produces, she adores Vanessa, makes lots of new friends and skips in each morning eager to finish what she's working on and start the next one. What I liked about the Camp this year was the fabulous outdoor space for their breaks and playtime and also that they got to go into the House and playground. I would highly recommend The Craft Corner camps and will be booking early for next year!

Great value for money, when you consider how much they did every day. …you are so great with children, full of enthusiasm, ideas and patience

-parent of child that attended one of our Summer Craft camps

My little girl had such a fantastic week at camp. Not only did she make some beautiful artwork but she came home happy every day. She is a little shy but Vanessa ensured she was always comfortable and happy and introduced her to the other children so she made new friends too. I will most certainly be sending her back and would highly recommend it to anyone

Vanessa did a great job in managing all the children and was excellent at regaining their attention and redirecting them.

-feedback from the full time carer of boy with ADHD

Excellent service with excellent quality

I particularly liked the journal – think it’s really beautiful and also something that she will use time and again.

-parent of camper

James had a fantastic time at the camp. Vanessa is great with kids and they produced some lovely artwork. It was great for him to do something creative and have an outlet for his imagination. He came home on the last day and asked to go straight to the shops for his own glue card and scissors for "project number 1" at home!

The craft corner camp was fantastic. My daughter is 9 and she loved it and came home with wonderful things every day.

My 5 year old daughter had a great time at this camp. She was well minded at it and came on a lot in her drawing skills etc over the week. She did not know anyone prior to her week at the camp but made lots of new friends while there. All in all an excellent camp which was very well run and we will definitely go again next year.

Caoimhe loved making all the items!! Her  favourite would probably have been the customised board game. She was loath to pick a favourite when I asked her to, and enjoyed them all.

-Sinead B.

Aoibheann had a fantastic time in camp. She did amazing art work and met lovely other kids Vanessa does a great job at making each child feel very special and the personalised note and gift at the end of the camp was so individualized. Couldn't recommend enough we will be back next camp for sure

I was very impressed with the book and (the) board game … a lot involved in a craft like this and the expertise and patience of teacher made a great end result for Muireann.

-parent’s feedback on the summer camp projects

Vanessa was just incredible with my 5yr old daughter. It was her first ever camp. From clinging to our leg day one to not wanting the camp to end on day 5, it was a fantastic week. She hasn't stopped creating every since! I would highly recommend The CraftCorner! Thank you.

I thought it was great for her creativity and imagination

-Lorraine Minogue

It was a great time with the craft conor summer camp in Naas! My daughter really enjoyed this camp and learned new skills of craft. She's got lots of idea in her daily crafting at home! Tnx a million to Vanessa and staff. 100% sure join for the next camp and events. See you again soon

Well done Vanessa and The Craft Corner. My two girls really enjoyed the week in summer camp and I will look forward to sending them again next year.

My girl had a great time at the camp. She loved all the artworks which she learned how to make. Vanessa is brilliant with a kids. When the camp finished Linh asked when she can attend the camp again, so we hope to see you soon

Overall Maria had a great time and met new friends. I like the fact that the number of kids is limited so they can interact each other and express themselves and this is what exactly I was looking for. I would like to thank you Vanessa, you did a great job!

-Marina

Aoife had a wonderful party thanks to Venessa. All the girls loved the two projects and Venessa was brilliant including all the different ranges of ages at the party. All the girls loved their diaries. From a parents point of view Venessa supplies everything for the arts and crafts, even the tables! 
I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone who's child loves arts and crafts!

I was most impressed with the photograph of the group with the lovely note on it specifically written for her.
-Suzanne

Emma really enjoyed Easter camp in the grounds of Castletown House . Her favourite part to camp was the visit to the house , she loved it . 
As always Emma really loves the open crafting project . She enjoyed and was delighted with the little help and guidance from Vanessa with her piece of art for her pet Oreo .

Both our children attended the camps – a girl aged 12 and a boy aged 8. They thoroughly enjoyed the activities amid the lovely atmosphere created by Vanessa. The crafts they made used plenty of skills and creativity and they got great satisfaction from the end results. The camps are highly recommended.

-Grainne A.

Vanessa thanks for hosting a wonderful art camp last week - Ailbhe enjoyed every minute of it! She brought home some beautiful art and craft pieces and so much was packed into each day! Thanks again she's already looking fwd to the next one!

Fantastic camp providing fun and education in a clean and friendly environment, and only down the road.

-Sandra O.

The Craft Corner summer camp was a big hit in our house, every day brought new crafty projects and kept budding artists busy! We have tried other craft camps but this one really allowed the child to be creative in their own way and hit the right note for 5 to 8 year olds

-Caroline Greene

Overall an excellent camp that was very well managed and I would recommend it to anyone.
