No experience is necessary to attend a workshop and each student leaves with a finished painting and has a great day out.

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
