Mart Watercolour Life Painting Masterclass

I’ll be leading a masterclass in life drawing and life painting on the 26th/27th of April in MART, Gallery 2, thanks to Mart Academy. Details below!

Life Drawing and Painting Masterclass with Áine Macken and Burlesque Life Model.
26 & 27th April, 10 am – 4 pm in the MART Old Firestation Rathmines.

This immersive and entertaining class with renowned painter and educator Áine Macken will give you the chance to explore and develop your drawing and painting skills with a Burlesque/Cabaret performer as our alternative life model for what promises to be an enjoyable and rewarding weekend of creativity.

Utilising our very talented, experienced and fun model, Áine will show you how to improve your drawing skills by thinking outside your average art class and really playing with drawing and painting to make some really amazing work! Some of the tasks will involve portraiture speed dating; blind drawing; playing with watercolour; testing your memory; mixing colour; and all involve throwing yourself into life drawing and painting eventually having perfectly finished life paintings on canvas by the end of the weekend.

Due to overwhelming demand, the original date of 3/4th of May has been pushed forward to allow for a bigger venue and even more spaces, which have now DOUBLED to 12 and mean that the price for the two day masterclass is only €80.

Áine has exhibited in Ireland and internationally and has run nightlife art classes called ART CLASH for two years now, and having soaked up all that information will be guiding people in a comprehensive and new way of thinking about how to make successful images in a fun and relaxed environment where you’ll see real results!
