Me and The Moon’s mission is to provide an uplifting experience for children in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Our process-led art workshops encourage creative play and 'happy accidents'.
Process Art is a creative journey rather than a deliverable end product. Children don't feel pressure to deliver a 'perfect' piece and are free to have fun and think for themselves. This is why process-led workshops help to grow children's confidence and independence.
All workshops are coordinated by experienced professionals in a safe and structured manner. Children learn fundamental inter-disciplinary skills in; Paint, Print, Collage, 3D Construction, Clay, Animation and Typography. We work with teaching professionals who share our passion and commitment to creating a welcoming and happy creative space for children.
Services include weekly workshops in Wicklow and Kerry during school terms, Art Camps during school breaks, Parties and Pop-up Events nationwide,

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING
We are interested in the development of the child's imagination, creativity and confidence. We allow for creative play and 'happy accidents'. Children create work unique to themselves, rather than replicating the teacher's sample.
We surround ourselves with like-minded colleagues; Teachers, Artists and Designers with a genuine passion for what we do. We are staffed by experienced professionals, Garda vetted and insured.
Sustainibality is a core value of our organisation and we work with Recreate to source recycled and sustainable materials as part of our workshops. Our main goal is to help to grow children's confidence and creative problem-solving, and we aware of how important it is to act as good role models.
