August 2019 Painting Workshop at Meeting of the Waters – Itinerary

We meet at this scenic Wicklow location at 10am when Rod Coyne provides a drawing/painting demonstration which is a most noteworthy introduction before the group start their own art works. Throughout the day Rod always is on hand with individual tips and techniques as a result appropriate to each student’s level. There is a much needed break for lunch before finally completing the days work at 4pm. The emphasis is on enjoying the painting process in an informal, friendly atmosphere, and above all joining in the 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, hence a list of essential materials is available on request. Alternatively basic drawing and painting materials and equipment can be provided for a surcharge of € 25 per day, similarly students can also hire easel & drawing-board combination at a rate of €10 per day. Please note all of the above need to be booked in advance. Workshop T&C’s.
