“Found yesterday’s workshop with Rod at the Meeting of the Waters in Avoca a thoroughly enjoyable day. Just the most beautiful setting for painting outdoors. All organised to the last detail. Great rapport among the group, facilitated by Rod’s easy manner. I learnt loads, went beyond my comfort zone and feel inspired to get outside to paint more. Many thanks for all your guidance, Rod.” – Finola.

April 2018 Painting Workshop – Itinerary
We meet at this scenic Wicklow location at 10am and Rod Coyne will provide a drawing/painting demonstration as introduction before the group start their own art works. Throughout the day Rod always is on hand with individual tips and techniques for all students appropriate to their level. There is a much needed break for lunch before completing the days work at 4pm. The emphasis is on enjoying the painting process in an informal, friendly atmosphere, and as part of a group dynamic. The workshop is suitable for beginners to experienced painters.
Materials and equipment such as paint, canvases, paper, easels, drawing-boards, brushes and solvents and rags are to be brought along to the class by the student. A list of essential materials is available on request. Alternatively basic drawing and painting materials and equipment can be provided for a surcharge of € 20 per day. Students can also hire easels separately at a rate of €5 per day. Please note all of the above need to be booked in advance. Workshop T&C’s.
