May 13.- Gilded ‘Nature Icons’ Workshop - With KevinMcSherry - Rathmines, Dublin 6


A full day SUNDAY tutored workshop in painting and gilding ‘Nature Icons’. 

11.00AM to 4.45PM

Cost €75

with a one hour lunch break. 8 places ONLY.

These gilded paintings are like jewels -they catch the eye with the richness of the colours and lustre of the gilding. They’re reminiscent of Byzantine religious icons and they sanctify these beautiful creatures. Using imitation Gold leaf, you’ll get an insight into how it can bring a stunning new dimension into your art work.

As in all my classes, I’ll demonstrate as we go along through the process and all participants will get personal attention throughout the day. 

There’s full facilities in this venue - plus there’s a 10% discount on art supplies when you attend this workshop.

To speed up the painting process, I’ll provide a selection of photographic references and templates. I will provide paint, boards and gilding materials. We will be working with ACRYLICS ONLY for this workshop.

We’ll cover the following:

  • Preparation and composition
  • Drawing the figure
  • Painting the composition
  • Gilding
  • Refining and completion

Learn to draw and paint oils and acrylics with, Kevin McSherry, in his Dublin art studio in South Dublin. Morning and evening classes for adults of all abilities. Small class sizes. Look out for the special summer schedule of one-off classes.
