What you'll do

This will be a painting workshop set in my studio and garden in the Kerry hills on the Ring of Kerry. Guests will be guided through some of the basics of oil painting and color mixing. We will be making pictures using paints, pastels, pencils or charcoals whichever guests prefer. Its an informal art session to accustom guests with some of the approaches to painting on location. While enjoying the lovely nature of south Kerry surroundings.
Other things to note
We will be outdoors in the garden looking at the hills or flowers or pond painting, drawing and chatting! If it's raining we will be indoors looking out onto these scenes. We'll have a tea break.

I am a self taught painter I mostly work in oils and have been painting for over 27 years. I studied History of Art and love both
traditional and contemporary art. As an artist I have had many solo exhibtions and my work is shown in galleries in Dublin and Kenmare. An experienced art tutor I love encouraging people to paint and to explore art in all its forms.
This class can be enjoyed by everyone and previous experience isn't necessary to find it a rewarding and relaxing way to spend time in one of the worlds loveliest places.

A fun experience. Dana greats you and offers tea or coffee along with some treats. The painting experience is varied to what you would like to do. I did acrylic paint whilemy wife did water colors (with her set we brought). I am not an artistbut felt very comfortable withthe experience.

Painting and sketching with Dana was perhaps the highlight of my husband's and my two week vacation in Scotland and Ireland. I feel like I met a soulmate in Dana. She was so helpful and accomodating. I will always cherish the memory of our art experience and consider Dana a dear, dear friend!

I wanted something to help me gain confidence in relaxing and appreciating a landscape and this was achieved. For me it was not about the output but about being able to feel connected with a wonderful environment and express my feelings by immersing myself for a few hours - to learn how to relax and not judge myself, so that I can do so in the future, in other wonderful places when I travel. Totally got this. Full stop. Just do it for yourself. And enjoy. Dana is patient, supportive and a real inspiration.

This experience painting with Dana was fabulous. We were beyond thankful that Dana opened up this class on the day we were expected on our trip. Her flexibility was very much appreciated. We got to relax and paint the landscapes of Kerry for an afternoon. Dana provides the supplies and sets you up with options for medium offering as much or as little advice as wanted. In addition to painting, Dana welcomes you into her beautiful home, offering tea, coffee, and biscuits. You don’t have to be an artist to appreciate this, and I would recommend this to everyone to do along their Ring of Kerry route.

Donna's house is lovely with excellent views. Donna was extremely helpful in teaching us to paint--it was our first time. I'd highly recommend this experience for tourists and locals alike!
