Flying lessons - 30 Minute Introductory Flight:
Where: Weston Airport, Leixlip Co Kildare
An Introductory Flight is the first step for anyone wondering what it feels like to fly an aeroplane & will count towards your Private Pilot's Licence if you decide to continue your flight training. At National Flight Centre we offer a choice of 30 minute or 60 minute introductory flights. Your first lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your instructor covering the safety aspects of the flight & giving you a general introduction to the features & controls of the aircraft you will be flying. All our aircraft are equipped with full dual flying controls. You will be provided with a headset so that you can talk with your instructor & hear conversations between your instructor & Air Traffic Control during the flight.
Your instructor will perform the take-off and landing and, once the aircraft is in the air, you will be given the opportunity to take the controls and experience the thrill of flying at first hand. If you live in the vicinity of the aerodrome, and depending on the duration of the flight and the constraints of Air Traffic Control, it may be possible to arrange a flight over your home. Back on the ground, your instructor will issue you with a certificate to commemorate your day. Gift Vouchers are available for 30 minutes or 60 minutes flight time. All vouchers are supplied in a presentation wallet and are valid for 6 months from the date of issue.

Secret by Rhonda Byrne:
Once known by an elite who were unwilling to share their knowledge of the power, 'the secret' of obtaining anything you desire is now revealed by prominent physicists, authors and philosophers as being based in the universal Law of Attraction. And the good news is that anyone can access its power to bring themselves health, wealth and happiness. Fragments of the secret have been found in oral traditions, literature, religions and philosophies throughout the centuries.
A number of the exceptional people who discovered its power went on to become regarded as the greatest human beings who ever lived. Among them: Plato, Leonardo, Galileo and Einstein. Now 'the secret' is being shared with the world. Beautiful in its simplicity, and mind-dazzling in its ability to really work, The Secret reveals the mystery of the hidden potential within us all. By unifying leading-edge scientific thought with ancient wisdom and spirituality, the riveting, practical knowledge will lead readers to a greater understanding of how they can be the masters of their own lives.

Art At The Park - Weekend Art Courses:
Where: Killanena in Clare
Drawing Classes, Suitable for all levels. Everything you need to know about observing your subject matter, using line and tone, and light and dark, understanding tonal contrasts and how the light source affects the subject, and drawing objects in relation to each other. Using formal, structural arrangements to tighten your observational skills, make you 'look' harder and get the right results on the page.
Portraiture Classes. Suitable for students with some drawing experience rather than complete beginners. A two day course. Day one is drawing from a model, learning to look, see and understand the face, using pencil. Day two moves on to colour, using pastels, coloured pencils and/or watercolour, working from your own personal reference photograph. Maximum class: 7 students.
Life Drawing Classes. Suitable for all levels. There is something very special about drawing the nude form from life. The human figure is so familiar, and is very satisfying to draw, using line and tone, in pencils, charcoal and pastels. Julie will guide you when you need help. You won't believe how much you will improve in just one session! Half day and all day sessions.
Price: €200 for two days (depending on the course - this does not include accommodation but they have all of the local BnB's on their site)
