In all of my painting workshops, you will enjoy the fun, relaxed atmosphere, with lots of one-on-one time with me, live demonstrations and hands-on help.

The cost for participation in the art workshop is €145, covering all materials, including canvas and oil paints, as well as lunch and refreshments.

Come and join me for the day in the Loft Room – Skerries Mills, Skerries, County Dublin. Enjoy refreshments and lunch in the private Snug Room of the Watermill Restaurant and choose your lunch from the extensive menu.

No prior experience is required to join the workshop, and every participant leaves with a completed painting.  Workshops are scheduled on either Saturdays or Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.    All necessary materials are provided, so there’s no need to bring anything—just wear comfortable, old clothes (aprons are available).    As workshops are limited, early booking is recommended.

If you are booking an art workshop as a gift and you would like a gift card, please write a note in additional information/order notes on the checkout page, requesting a gift card.

Please be aware that the Loft Room is accessible via two flights of stairs, potentially posing challenges for those with mobility issues.

Would highly recommend Karen’s one day workshop for those looking for a uniquely enjoyable day out exploring your creative side, whether new or old to art. Myself and my mother-in-law thoroughly enjoyed learning to paint daisies with a pallet knife, singing along to epic tunes in a warm and welcoming environment. It was fun seeing each person’s unique painting at the end of the class. Karen provided excellent tuition, very patient, with hands-on step by step instructions, in her beautiful studio in Skerries Mills. The studio itself is wonderful to explore with her fabulous artwork and distinctive style paintings.

If you love painting or want to give it a go I would highly recommend Karen’s class. I attended a one-day seascape workshop working with a palette knife. It was my first time using oils – Karen managed different levels of ability and everyone left with a beautiful painting. Such a relaxed day and a really lovely lunch as well. I’ll be back again
