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 more than 50 years experience, these are chosen carefully, taking into account each participant’s skills.

PAINTING COURSES – Summer painting courses are conducted in Wicklow and Connemara by experienced professional artists, Kenneth and Susan Webb. Absolute beginners as well as more advanced students, are equally welcome. Individual expression is encouraged in an instructive and friendly atmosphere.

WORKPLAN – Students paint outdoors every day, weather permitting. Permament fully equipped comfortable studio available in case of inclement weather. Tuition is from 10:30am to 5:30pm with a one hour break for lunch. (Bring your own thermos and packed lunch!).

DEMONSTRATIONS- Each full day begins with a demonstration from the tutor in oils, watercolours, acrylics, gouache, or mixed media. Afterwards he or she will help each student to a personal interpretation. Subject matter is constantly varied so that those joining for several weeks need not fear unnecessary repetition. Advanced students are encouraged to explore their own ideas and will receive advice as required. Special morning demonstrations in the Blue Door Studio begin at 11am and finish at 1pm after tea/coffee and cake and Q and A.

STUDIOS – Studios are always available in case the weather drives us indoors. Demonstrations indoors when necessary, as well as lectures and discussions using video on different artists and techniques.

BOOKINGS: A non-refunable deposit of 50 euros must be sent made payable to Susan Webb, at RiverRun Studio, Nun’s Cross, Ashford, Co. Wicklow, to secure place.
