Achill Island Art Trip "A great experience, I would highly recommend it.." 

From 20th- 24th June I spent these few days with a group of students from Catherine Lawlor's school of Art. The scenery was amazing, unspoilt and raw. We spent our time sketching and painting and taking photos and had wonderful guidance from Catherine to paint en plein air, to make the most of the scenery in front of our eyes and to capture amazing compositions for the future. When you go on an art trip, you are seeing your surroundings as potential paintings and with Catherine's guidance, they will evolve into your own original work. A great experience, I would highly recommend it, thanks Catherine.

Achill Island - Painting Trip 

Date: Thursday June 20th to Monday June 24th 2019 
 
Catherine took a group of students to Achill Island on the beautiful West Coast of Ireland where they were inspired by the breathtaking scenery to create some fantastic pieces of art. A great time was had by all and we are already looking forward to planning the next trip.  
 
"We had a wonderful workshop in Achill with Catherine. We painted and sketched from Kathleen's house overlooking Granuaile's Castle, Cloughmore and along the Wild Atlantic Way. The scenery all over Achill is really spectacular! 
 
I really enjoyed meeting up with everyone again and for the opportunity to sketch and paint 'plein air' in Paul Henry's own country. 
 
Catherine really is a good teacher, she is very much in tune with the level you are at, but challenges you to do better. I would recommend it to anyone who is in love with Art and the Wild Atlantic Way"
