Teambuilding Art Events Dublin

The Big Picture:  Teambuilding Art Events in Dublin.

Plan your fun events for teambuilding art events in Ireland with experienced art teacher Kevin McSherry. You bring your team and I’ll bring my ideas tailored to your company’s needs.

This is just one fantastic idea to get your team’s creativity and team spirit boosted: I take a composition and divide it into sections in advance of the event. I get each team to paint one part of the painting with their own creativity and sensibility without seeing the overall plan. Call me on 086 247 0737

A Team Building Project in Dublin

Earlier this year, I created a teambuilding art event for Comfort Keepers’ carer awards, in association with video producers Tinpot Productions and TV presenter, Dáithi Ó Sé.

Teambuilding events in Dublin?

Art is a fantastic way to get people together to have a shared bonding experience and produce a creative artwork that everyone can enjoy and be a part of. I tailor these team building events to each group and you can hold them in a venue of your choice anywhere. With my wide experience, I’m endlessly good humoured and patient and I guide participants throughout the painting process while letting them express their own creativity -and have a ball in the process.

What’s more is that Comfort Keepers now have an extraordinary and visually impressive work of art hanging in their headquarters. The staff created it themselves and all are invested in it. Result!

Planning your art-based team building event

I take great care of the project from the outset. I plan teambuilding art events meticulously and collaborate with you in advance; from the artistic composition to the event on the big day. I have run these team building art events in Dublin in such venues as: D-Light Studios, Dublin  Artmines Studio and Lough Rynn Castle Hotel in Leitrim

Halcyon Day at Kevin McSherry’s Gold Leaf Art Workshop in Dublin

Look what flew in…

We had such a great day at my gold leafing icons art workshop in my studio. The weather was beautiful and when we broke for lunch, we all headed down the road to find a bite eat and sit in the sun. Then we had the last leg to complete; finish the gilding and make good the painting. That’s the great thing about acrylics: you can take home a dry painting.

Thank you to all those who attended. Do keep an eye out for the next workshop at the tab above.

Art Workshop: Gilded ‘Nature Icons’. May 13

Change of venue: This workshop will now take place in my studio at 17 Aideen Avenue, Terenure, D6WY635. Same start time. Map below.

A full day SUNDAY tutored workshop in painting and gilding ‘Nature Icons’. 

11.00AM to 4.45PM

with a one hour lunch break. 8 places ONLY.

These gilded paintings are like jewels -they catch the eye with the richness of the colours and lustre of the gilding. They’re reminiscent of Byzantine religious icons and they sanctify these beautiful creatures. Using imitation Gold leaf, you’ll get an insight into how it can bring a stunning new dimension into your art work.

 As in all my classes, I’ll demonstrate as we go along through the process and all participants will get personal attention throughout the day. 

To speed up the painting process, I’ll provide a selection of photographic references and templates. I will provide paint, boards and gilding materials. We will be working with ACRYLICS ONLY for this workshop.
We’ll cover the following:

  • Preparation and composition
  • Drawing the figure
  • Painting the composition
  • Gilding
  • Refining and completion

This event will take place in the Art Space of Artmines art materials shop.
