Oil painting workshops are held at my art gallery and studio located just outside Dunboyne Co. Meath beside the Hatchet Pub, and centrally located between Kilcock, Maynooth, Dunshaughlin and approximately 20-30 minutes from Trim and Clonee by car.

The gardens are an on-going process with a full meadow to the side of the house along with a bee apiary in the little woodland.

The workshops and masterclasses change from season to season to suit students’ needs and indeed to allow me to take time to paint and get ready for upcoming exhibitions held throughout the year.

Autumn to Spring, I mostly teach the foundation level courses which are as follows:

Foundation Level 1

4 week 2-hour beginner workshop or indeed an improvers workshop who are not familiar with oil painting materials, how to prepared canvases/boards and the various oil painting techniques. We will go at your own pace and will be carrying out oil studies by artists such as Caillebotte and Monet the Impressionists and the Scottish Colourist – Peploe.

Foundation Level 2

4 week 2-hour beginner/improver workshop where we will carry out oil studies by the Fauvist Vlaminck along with a lovely study by Van Gogh.

Foundation Level 3

4 week 2-hour beginner/improver workshop where we will carry out oil studies by Munch, Klimt, Degas and Van Gogh. – which all deal with your Primary Colours – blue, red and yellow.

Foundation Level 4

4 week 2-hour beginner/improver workshop where we will carry out oil studies of works included in the National Gallery of Ireland Collection including Monet, Munter, Osborne and Sorolla.

Material List

Saturday Morning Workshops

I will be showing you what materials to get and how to use them. How to prepare your boards, clean your brushes and how to paint a painting from beginning to end. Depending on your skill I hope that we might complete 2 paintings – one black and white which will help with value and ease you into painting and one colour. The studies will vary over the coming months but for September / October I will have a Caillebotte, Matisse, Paul Henry and a Peploe for you to choose from.

Workshop cost:

Saturday Morning workshop – €165.00 (I will supply the materials)

Due to COVID we are not providing tea/coffee or light refreshments, and we have temporarily suspended our warm-up pastel drawing section and our art history section. But I will be sending you out a full set of the art history section notes for you to read at your leisure.

On Site parking available.

“I joined Emily’s art workshop classes a few years before covid. The minute I walked in, I felt the homely atmosphere and also the enthusiastic energy. I had no knowledge of painting; I was a raw beginner. Emily’s gift of educating, encouraging and demonstrating helped everyone relax and just enjoy…”
