In May, when the gentians carpet the Burren landscape or in August, when the summer is at its peak, “make the time to drive out West, into county Clare” – as Seamus Heaney so warmly invites you.
Make the time to draw under the guidance of Prof Timothy Emlyn Jones and rediscover how to use your eyes. Walk the Burren hills, then cast that impression onto canvas back at the studio with Conor McGrady.
Let Jane Stark introduce you to botanical art for beginners, while Susan Sex, Rita Wobbe, Trevor Geoghegan and Geraldine O’Riordan will guide you deeper into botanical, abstract, landscape or impasto painting.
