About Tribe Art Studio

Tribe Art Studio was inspired by a lifelong love of art. The art studio offers a space for people to connect and create through the power of art.

find your tribe.

Tribe Art Studio was established by Rose Lawlor, an artist working through the mediums of pastel, charcoal and oils. Motivated by her love for art, Rose created Tribe. 

Rose is an expert in creative arts for children, with years of experience, and a BA in Early Childhood Education. Tribe activities ensure participants receive the complete benefits of the creative process in a non-competitive, welcoming atmosphere.

Rose Lawlor - Tribe Art Studio

I have spent many years refining and developing my art skills. My biggest passion in life is art and working with children.

Following an 8 year career working in and assistant managing a Pre-School in a creche setting I chased a crazy dream to bring what I so strongly believe in to other people.

The aim of the studio was to enhance the lives of a community of people by bringing them together through the power of art. The space was created with love and attention to detail ensuring that the experience people receive is of the highest standard every time so that when you pay a visit to us you leave refreshed and inspired!

Since opening our doors in 2019 we have had fantastic positive feedback with people returning time and time again. We are always developing and evolving our offering to meet our customer needs and interests meaning our programme is always jam packed. Take a look around at what we offer, we promise you won’t regret the Tribe experience!

our mission

Our mission is to enhance the lives of a community of people by bringing them together through the power of art. We believe everybody can benefit from the creative process and, experienced or otherwise, Tribe participants are encouraged and supported to achieve their creative goals.

Our aim is to help people young and old accomplish self-expression in an inviting, friendly and non-competitive atmosphere.

Taking inspiration from the atelier system through the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, the children in this studio lead their work and are valued as central to their own learning. The children’s work is focused on the process, emphasising the creative journey rather than the end product.

Find Your Tribe

Our studio name is central to our ethos….
”A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe; a shared interest and a way to communicate.”

our ethos

What really sets us apart at Tribe Art Studio is our experience and our passion. We love what we do and we have over 10 years experience working with children as well as a lifetime of experience with the creative process.

Confidence is built through freedom of expression.

There is no pressure to be an amazing artist and produce something fantastic just because you have come to an art class. We focus on delivering the benefits of the process for both children and adults.


For the arts and the work we do with customers


To providing a quality service every time you visit.


Our studio promotes a fun, relaxing and welcoming environment for all.


Each participant’s work is based on the enjoyment of the creative process.

Rose is so good at her job!! My kids did the xmas workshop with her and one child has had a birthday party at Tribe. They enjoyed every second of both and came out wondering when they could go back.

I have also attended a Paint & Sip in Tribe and again I loved it; it was 2 hours to myself where I had the space and guidance to create a not too bad piece of art, I’ve already booked another one for me and my dad!!!

Wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Rose and Tribe for any of your artistic needs

We recently held our daughters 6th birthday party in Tribe Art Studio. I quote my daughter “it was the best day ever”. Thanks so much to Rose and her team for such a great day and such creative fun for the kids. They had a ball.

Just back from the paint and sip night. I had a great night. Everything was beautiful, the setting , the music and the food. Rose’s attention to detail was meticulous.

We were shown step by step, how to paint our picture. It was a really lovely, relaxing evening and I would definitely recommend it, if you are looking for a nice evening with friends or any group event. Also, perfect if you are looking to explore a new hobby or meet new people. Very relaxed environment.

Can’t wait for the next one!

My almost 7 year old daughter did a summer camp with Rose last week and it exceeded both our expectations. Everyday she came home with gorgeous artwork, each piece creative and different. My daughter said she was ‘going to miss camp so much as she made so many friends and loved the art activities’ !!! i would highly recommend Tribe Art Studio it’s a little treasure in Castledermot

I recently bought two personalised prints for first birthdays we had come up and they are incredible! Amazing quality and the frames were so beautiful too! It’s so nice to have a local business to support with this style of gift and they are so affordable too! Can’t wait to order another for my daughter’s room!
