Finola’s Testimonial

“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.

September 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 and 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.

Painting Holiday 2017 – dedicated me-time

Avoca Painting School’s Painting Holiday 2017 allows you to develop your creative side in the midst of the Wicklow Mountains in the heart of the “Garden of Ireland”. The week is tailored for absolute beginners and experienced painters. Whether you’re starting out and would like to learn new techniques, or have been painting for years and want to take it onto the next level this course is for you. Participants will take home much more than their new creations – working outdoors gives a natural feeling of achievement, fulfillment and recharges the human batteries.

Practicing professional artist Rod Coyne, who has over 25 years experience working plein air, will demonstrate all techniques. While painting everyone will be supported with tips and techniques relating to the use of various materials, composition, colour-mixing and brushwork appropriate to their level. Rod chooses each painting location with care and attention to the needs of his students. He is also keenly aware of the roll weather has to play and carefully factors this into each daily scene. In fact the chosen locations will provide plenty for any non-painters to see and enjoy.

Book your own Workshop Accommodation

Not everyone books accommodation with us and we’re fine with that. Many Avoca Painting School students like to take charge and put their own weekend and holiday packages together. We have compiled a list of nearby overnight options to help you book your own workshop accommodation.

 

Painting Holiday 2017 – Rod’s take

Painting holiday group at Avoca Handweavers.

“I love hosting the painting holidays because of the group dynamic which builds during the week. We look to create an informal, friendly and fun atmosphere where the art seems to thrive. And it’s always fascinating to see how far students develop during a period of total immersion in paint. I see them leave brimming with confidence, having moved from tentative mark making on Monday to attacking the canvas with gusto by Friday” – Rod Coyne.
