Paint with Me

     2017 WORKSHOPS are now LIVE  #amen

Helping other people to paint and tap into their creativity gives me almost as much pleasure as painting itself. It is my absolute pleasure to host my painting  and creativity workshops in a variety of locations here in Ireland and overseas.  As a (mostly) self-taught painter, I am living proof that anyone can paint! I have made all the mistakes so those who come to my sessions don’t have to! I sometimes describe my classes as ‘Painting for the Petrified’ as they tend to demystify and remove the fear around the creative process and painting!

My classes are open to EVERYONE – beginners, re-beginners, experienced painters and those hoping to loosen up or explore new painting styles. I release my workshop dates directly to my mailing list, so please do sign up (at the bottom of this page) to receive information and dates directly.

Corporate Creativity & Team Building

Championing creativity in the workplace can revolutionise your working processes. It can also be very fun. I work with groups to help them problem-solve, tease out new ideas or simply get to know each other a little better.

Through a series of guided group and personal exercises, I help participants to tap into their own creativity while contributing to a collaborative creative project. The results are immediately impressive – everyone learns a new skill by making their own take-home artwork – but also have proven long-term effects. Each group completes a very beautiful piece of art that takes pride or place back at HQ.

Working as a team to realise a creative solution is, at the very least, rewarding and convivial but often has more radical effects including highlighting people’s individual strengths, bond-building and diminishing perceived hierarchical structures.

All materials are provided. NO experience necessary. Participants should bring a open mind and a sense of humour! Please enquire for availability and rates.

Painting WorkshopsWorkshops

** My 2017 Workshop Schedule will be released to my mailing list in JANUARY 2017**

I currently offer 2 workshops, namely: – ‘Adventures in Abstract Art’ and ‘Abstracting the Landscape’. Both classes are suitable for all levels and are a great opportunity to develop your own intuitive painting style while learning lots and having ton of fun! I think the testimonials above go some way to giving you a flavour of what to expect.

‘Adventures in Abstract Art’   is ideal for those who have never painted but would really like to nurture a creative means of expression. This workshop is great too for people who have painting experience but want to loosen up their style and / or make their own unique work. Through a series of fun and stimulating exercises, you will learn techniques and tools across various media that will kick-start your creativity. You will laugh a lot and you might get a little messy!

‘Abstracting the Landscape’ teaches participants how to abstract elements of the landscape and create their own painterly response. Through a series of fun and stimulating exercises, you will learn how to approach landscape painting in a fresh and creative manner while tapping into and developing your own intuitive painting style.

Workshop participants will take home 2-4 completed paintings, renewed confidence in their painting ability and lots of skills to help them begin, work through and complete great paintings. All materials, a gallery tour, yummy refreshments, lunch and extensive Follow-On notes are all provided.

Please Note: Gift vouchers can be redeemed against workshops.

One-to-One Tutorials & Mentoring:

I offer One-to-One painting and / or creativity classes  and mentoring for those who prefer specific and private tutorage. This might be in relation to changing style, getting to grips with specific materials or you might need help preparing a body of work for exhibition. All sessions are pre-planned  and tailored to your needs to ensure maximum benefit in your area of interest. Individual classes can be a once-off or a series of classes in the recipients home, in my studio or via Skype – if appropriate. Gift Vouchers are available and may be redeemed against One-to-One classes.
