This workshop 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.

Participants will take home 2-4 completed paintings, renewed confidence in their painting ability and lots of new skills to help them begin, work through and complete great paintings. Comprehensive Follow-On notes will ensure you can hit the ground running when you return home.

Who is it for:  Open to absolute beginners and those with a little or a lot of painting experience (in any medium!). The only thing you really need for this class is an open mind and a willingness to have fun while painting.

What is included:   

  • 2 days of intense painting tuition to help you create your own unique paintings in response to landscape.
  • All materials including acrylic paints, inks, mixed media and a variety of mediums*
  • 2 X great quality canvasses and all paper supports*
  • All tools, brushes and palette knives* All you need to bring is yourself!
  • Guided demo’s developed in response to your requirements
  • Lots of  1-2-1 tuition and  support structured to your specific needs
  • Plenty of learning resources including an extensive library
  • A great, yum, nutritious lunch
  • Unlimited refreshments and snacks
  • Comprehensive Follow-On notes filled with  LOTS of online and offline resources and structured guidance on everything from colour management, to how to start and stop!

 

Please note: A key aim of this workshop is to help painters to loosen their painting style. If you want to create a photo-realist likeness this is not the workshop for you.

*NOTE: All materials are artist quality and valued at over €100 per participant. We are having fun but we are NOT messing around!

Nerd Note: In this workshop we  work in layers, so we use acrylic paints to speed-up drying time. We also use glaze layers to mimic the quality of oils. This technique has been known to convert / blow the minds of committed oil painters!! If this sounds like gobbledegook to you, don’t worry yer grand!
