In-Studio art classes are postponed for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis and will resume only after the all-clear is given by the medical authorities. Meanwhile. I’m offering online virtual classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. See here for details and booking.

PHASE 1: Essential 6 Colours for BEGINNER painters: (Get these FIRST)
- Winton Cobalt Blue
- Winton Permanent Rose
- Winton Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue
- Winton Titanium White (or Titanium buff)
- Winton Burnt Umber
- Winton Ivory Black (failing Ivory Black, get Indigo or Paynes Grey).

- Sap green (or Viridian)
- Cadmium Yellow Deep
- Burnt Umber
- Ultramarine Blue
- Cadmium Red
- DO bring the following (BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE PAINTERS):
- A Table box-easel. Such as this one. These are widely available in art shops.
- A flat wood painter’s palette (rather than one of those white palettes with dips -they’re more for watercolours).
- Solvent: Zest-it, (if you can get it -if not, get Sansodor). For cleaning brushes and diluting paint.
- Brushes –Synthetic short flat brights: 12 and 6. Also, a Round No. 1. I recommend the Create brand (you can buy a packet of 5 brushes for under €5 in Artmines, K&M Evans or Eason) and THESE are the ones. See a video about beginner brushes here.
- If you like Liquin, bring that too. (Liquin is a quick-drying medium and glazing additive).
- Wear old clothes: painting can be a messy business!
- Burnt Siena
- Warm Bright Yellow 513 (Sennelier)- OR – Pale Terracotta 437 (Winsor & Newton)
- Titanium White
Terms and conditions for Regular art classes Dublin
- Signing up for a term of art classes is a 6 week commitment; classes not taken cannot be carried forward to a new term.
- Terms can not be split up or fees discounted for classes not taken.
- When students are unable to make it to a class for whatever reason, I will always endeavour to let them catch up in another art class but only if a place is available.
- If I am unable to hold the art class, the class will be made up so students will not be short.
- Payment must be made at least 2 weeks before the term begins, in order that a replacement student can be arranged from the waiting list.
- Payment matters can not be discussed in the studio; the studio is a sanctuary for art, painting and creativity.
- Students should have the required painting materials for the class (please see above).
