Learn to Paint under Rod’s wing!


Learn to paint through total Immersion

Imagine your day’s work is to paint the landscape in front of you. Imagine your looking at a stunning vista in the Garden of Ireland. Imagine a dedicated artist of 30 years experience is going to first demonstrate the process from A – Z and then take you by the hand step-by-step. You’ve just imagined a day workshop with Avoca Painting School hosted by Rod Coyne.

Rod Coyne explaining painting techniques for working outdoors.

Time to learn to paint

Avoca Painting School offer you the chance to learn to paint landscape plein air. Facilitated by Rod Coyne the five-day-workshop will give you an intense insight to being creative outdoors. During decades working outdoors Rod has built up techniques to roll with the elements while chasing clouds and light across the canvas, and these can become yours while painting under his wing.
