Outdoor 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 absolute beginners to experienced painters. It is an ideal chance for those who have dabbled and would like to learn a little more. At the end of the workshop everyone has a picture to take home.

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.
