Waterford Youth Arts - Workshops


At Waterford Youth Arts, we run workshops in art, dance, drama, film, and creative writing. We are seeking adult volunteers to assist the tutors in ensuring things run smoothly. WYA typically runs 3 workshop programmes each year (Jan. – April / April to June and Sept. to Dec.), which tend to run for 9-week cycles during late afternoons, evenings, and on Weekends.

If you know someone in this age range who would love to learn about the art world while making new friends and doing something new, this is a great opportunity for them. No experience is necessary to get started and we have an open-door policy so anyone can get involved.

At WYA, safety is paramount, and while your young artists are involved in one of their workshops, you can be certain that they are learning in a safe and secure environment as all WYA staff and volunteers have been Garda Vetted and undergone child safety training. Since the workshops are back in person, the team and members will continue to work In line with national COVID-19 guidance; there will be restrictions on what they can do and how the team and members will work together to prioritize everyone’s safety and well-being.

All workshops are 45 euros per term except for Visual Arts, which is 65 euros to cover the cost of materials. All bookings must be made online through For more information, get in touch with us; see the workshops section on this website or get in touch with the team for any other information.
