Tuition includes: Painting with oil; Daily sessions are five hours of instructional painting with Kevin (with breaks). Weather permitting, we will be working along the famous Wild Atlantic Way in some of the most beautiful places in Ireland. There will be some work done in the studio depending upon the weather conditions. This is a very rare opportunity to learn from a Master Painter and have access to his studio and home life. The area is very beautiful and promised to be great fun and a meaningful learning experience. If you want to ship your supplies ahead of the workshop, please let us know. We can store your supplies up to a week before your arrival. Kevin will discuss directly with you what you will need for outdoor gear. 


Transportation and travel expenses not included. We can put you in touch with other students if you want to arrange shared rides. Taxi service and tour buses are all available in our area as well. 


Kevin will provide instruction for all learning levels from beginner to advanced. The groups are kept to a maximum of 8 students to allow for quality teaching and ample time to dedicate to each student. All the work is painted from life and the lessons will include a step by step process of learning as well as free form teaching based on the level of need and interest from each student. Each class will begin with a discussion on drawing and painting, materials, color, tonal values, light, form, composition and shapes. As the class progresses, each student will come away with a sense of how to achieve a painting that combines all of the teaching elements included in the class. He creates a fun atmosphere and packs is known for being very generous with his time and information. His goal is for the student to feel very satisfied with what they learned and enthusiastic to learn more. Kevin says, "If you want to learn how to draw and paint, I can teach you. I can provide you with all the training, information and support you need."  


Kevin's style is energetic and enthusiastic. He covers a great deal of information. He is patient and totally committed to providing an in depth look at how to build your painting and drawing abilities. He encourages each student to explore their own approach while learning how to incorporate methods that will help you develop and reach the next level on your artistic journey. 


Our goal is to allow for each student to learn at their own pace, to enjoy the process and feel a sense of achievement and satisfaction from learning and building their knowledge of painting and drawing.
