She has a First Class honours BA in Fine Art and a teaching Diploma in Art and Design. Maria is currently teaching Secondary School Art and has also spent three years teaching art in the prison services in Portlaoise. So, needless to say your budding artists are in good hands! Maria will guide students through a wide range of art and design activities including drawing, painting, paper craft, mosaics and sculpture. The classes will be fun and educational with students working on both group and individual activities. We cannot predict the weather these days but we can assure you there will be plenty of activities to keep them happy for the week!
