June 23. Sunday En Plein Air: Grangecon Wicklow

Sunday JUNE 23. Grangecon, Wicklow
En Plein Air. Painting the landscape with Kevin McSherry
 
I’m really excited about this upcoming workshop on June 23rd. Don’t miss this!
Join me in beautiful, friendly Grangecon in County Wicklow, where we will explore the village and surrounding beauty spots in the second workshop to be held here (The pictures are from class excursions to other locations). There’s a wonderful pub in Grangecon where we can relax and have lunch.
 
Hopefully the weather will hold out but if not, the contingency plan will be to paint indoors in the superb school hall. I will demonstrate and guide you as the day goes on. Starts 10am and finishes at 4.30pm. 1 hour for lunch.
 
You will need an ‘en plein air’ easel that you can bring with you plus oils or acrylics. You can call me if you need any more information: 086 247 0737 
 
Limited to 10 participants only. If you can’t book using this button, it means all places have been taken -but join my mailing list (at left) to be notified about other opportunities.
