Spring Art in Kerry

Cahernane House Hotel in Killarney is hosting a spring flower-inspired botanical watercolour painting workshop from the 5th to the 8th of March 2023.  

Watercolour artist Mary Dillon heads up this residential course which includes three nights bed and breakfast and one evening meal. The workshop also includes a farewell table d'hôte dinner in Herbert’s Restaurant on Tuesday evening.

Over the course of the workshop, the participants will be tutored in the art of watercolour and will learn how to bring the majesty and colour of spring flowers to life on paper. All materials will be provided including colours, brushes, palettes, watercolour paper and drawing boards, and there is no experience necessary. This course will include two and half days of painting in the Drawing Room in Cahernane House Hotel which overlooks the hotel’s mature gardens and Killarney National Park.

Mary Dillon is a botanical artist and an engaging and inspiring teacher who is passionate about painting and plants. She is a member of the Watercolour Society of Ireland and was the founding Chairperson of the Irish Society of Botanical Artists.
