A Perfect Painter’s Paradise!

The Painting School was established in 1985. The cosy atmosphere of the traditional, fully equipped Old Stable Studio - Stiúideo an Sean Stábla - c. 1850, is the perfect location for a painting break.

The Studio with large, panoramic windows is perfectly situated on a sheltered inlet and overlooks  the magnificent Cleggan Mountain range, with views of Croagh Patrick to the South. It is on The Great Western Greenway walk/cycle track from Achill to Westport .
  • Groups are small, so participants receive individual attention and constructive critique of their work, as they progress.
  • Instruction  in all painting media with a focus on developing personal style.
  • All aspects of composition, perspective, tonal value etc. are covered during the course.
  • Weather permitting, participants will visit various locations on Achill Island/Curraun Peninsula. Participants can avail of the opportunity to practise their “cupla focail” (few words of Irish). It is not a pre-requisite to have Irish – merely, to be open to new experiences!
