Three days of tutored outdoor painting, in the wonderful setting of Heywood Gardens, Masslough Lake & Woodlands, and Ballinakill Village.

Day 1 - August 22nd: We kick off our artistic journey amidst the breathtaking surroundings of Heywood Gardens. Designed by the legendary Edwin Lutyens and brought to life by Gertrude Jekyll in 1906, this garden is a haven for inspiration.

Days 2 & 3 - August 23rd & 24th: Venture into the magical woodlands and along the serene Masslough Lake, where every corner offers a new perspective for your canvas. Explore the woodland trails, lakeside paths, and diverse wildlife, capturing the essence of nature in your artwork.
