Oil Painting Art Course, County Clare, Ireland

Art is for Everyone

Have you ever thought you would like to paint a picture but just don't know where to start?

Well, treat yourself to a day of oil painting!

On Sunday, June 15th, 2008, in Tullabrack, Kilrush from 10am to 4pm, you will be taken through the very basics of creating a picture in oils, including how to prepare a canvas, paint a sky, water and land.

You don't have to bring any art materials - just yourself.

Lunch and all refreshments are also provided.

For further information - or to book your place (places are limited)
phone Avril on 0659051720 (+353 0659051720) or email: Clare Artist

Art is not just for the special few but also a wonderful form of therapy (I call it escapism) to get away from all the terrible things happening in the world and in our lives and escape into into a more beautiful world inside ourselves.

There is something very special about painting with oils. Unfortunately, so many people feel intimidated because it is supposedly more difficult than other mediums and you need to study for years before you understand the rules. That is not true.

There are a few very basic rules. The method I use I learnt through trial and error over many years and acquired my own way of painting without disregarding any of the rules. Sometimes, it's the mistakes that sparks off a wonderful new technique.

We are fortunate today to have many wonderful products so we don't have to endure smelly thinners and all the other negatives associated with oil painting.

So, come along and I hope that you will enjoy the wonderful world of oil painting as much as I do.
