Enniskerry Co. Wicklow
Summer Holidays are the perfect time to develop your painting and sketching practice, with these combined Plein Air-and-Studio, Four Day courses!
For artists of all levels and abilities, working in oil, watercolour and/or pencils.
You will be introduced to landscape painting and sketching , with sessions divided between studio time and working outdoors. As weather permits, we will take advantage of the fabulous choice of scenery at the doorstep of the Schoolhouse for Art – options may include : Powerscourt Gardens, Knocksink Forest, Scalp Rose Garden – and of course, our own lovely village of Enniskerry.
Outdoor sketching will strengthen your ability to identify the drama of the scene, define the best composition, observe proportion, gauge perspective and see the changing effects of light and shade.
Indoors, through a series of demonstrations, Brenda will share her sketch- to- painting process; developing lively observations into fully realised and refined paintings!
