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. Permanent fully equipped comfortable studio available in case of inclement weather. Tuition is from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm 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. The 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 11 am and finish at 1 pm 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 of different artists and techniques.
