Ireland Painting Holidays

The Irish School of Landscape Painting, founded by Kenneth Webb in 1957, is the original and foremost Holiday Painting School in Ireland. Each summer the School offers courses in some of Ireland's most breathtaking locations. With 50 years experience, these are chosen carefully, taking into account each participants skills. Summer painting courses are conducted in Wicklow and Connemara by experienced professional artists. Absolute beginners as well as advanced students, are equally welcome. Individual expression is encouraged in an instructive and friendly atmosphere.

To the right is an example of Susan painting an oil demonstration at Sally Gap in the Dublin Mountains from one of the Wicklow Courses. All the courses include on-site training and demonstrations in oils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels or mixed media.

Learn invaluable lessons of how to compose a picture on site as explained in easy to follow steps. Over the years, we have perfected a method and style that suits the wide range of artists that attend our courses.


Whether in Passingano or in the west of Ireland, we try to give you the tutoring that you need in a friendly
atmosphere where students help each other and enjoy themselves.  Demonstrations from working artists followed by personal tutorials, help to give focus to the day.

2015 Schedule Now Available

This year, Kenneth Webb is spending less time in Ireland and has decided to increase his classes when he is over! Susan and Kenneth co-teach many classes together in Wicklow at the RiverRun Studio and these places will be taken up quickly.

Susan Webb and Kenneth Webb were fortunate to have another exhibition in London at Gladwell and Pattersons.

The exhibition was a great success containing many new paintings of both artists. Kenneth at 88 is still painting 8 hours a day and fully active in all aspects of the school and galleries. He does not slow down and continues to innovate with his painting, never staying still.

Gladwell's is a exceptional gallery in the heart of the Knightsbridge, carrying with them a long history of Gladwell's and W.H. Pattersons. It is run by some very nice people. If you can not make the opening, do stop into the Gallery, Glenn Fuller and the staff will always be most helpful.

RiverRun Studio continues to develop its special themed classes. This year we are looking at Irish Impressionism to Expressionism with special emphasis on Humbert Craig and Yeats. In the winter months when going outside is difficult because of the weather, we will concentrate on an in-depth study of Cubism as applied to Still Life. We will also discover the application of Cubism to Irish Landscape Painting. These modules are particularly useful for students thinking of venturing into the world of Abstraction and developing a more subjective approach to their painting.
