Oil Painting Classes with Artist Vincent Keeling - South Dublin and Wicklow

Floral Painting - classes

29/04/24

This a quick update to tell you about a few new and potentially exciting developments for all you aspiring artists and art students out there.

The first is that I'm decided to offer One-to-One Art Mentorships via Zoom, with a real focus on giving feedback on your work using a little Digital Wizard, as well as lots of tips, advice and guidance. Click here for more info!

The second bit of news is that I've decided to start a new Newsletter with a sister Blog on this website, I'm calling THE ART NERDY JOURNEY where on a weekly basis I’ll be aiming to share lots of good information to help improve your your oil painting and drawing skills.

This will include such things as links to instructional content from other artists, ones I admire greatly and have learnt from myself. And also my own thoughts and ideas around putting all the various, and at times confusing, information in context.

And this is also where you can hear about any classes and mentorships I’ll be offering myself. New online classes to be announced in the next week or two!

I should mention that I do also have an older newsletter where people signed up to hear about classes I was offering, but I thought it best to keep that one separate. This older one was just for announcements regarding upcoming classes from me, without all the extra free content offered in The Art Nerdy Journey - Newsletter.

Thus if you're interested in hearing from me for tips and free help with your art endeavours, as well as classes, this is really the only list you need to be on.

OLDER INFO BELOW.

 

Hi Everyone, 

This is just a quick update as of October 2023 to let people know that I've taken a step back from the teaching for now. Always hard trying to balance the teaching side of things and my own studies and art creation. I'm not saying I won't be back, and I'm actually doing a lot of reading and writing at the moment, so no doubt this will come to something in time. For now, if you fancy it you could always subscribe to my class newsletter below, or indeed subscribe to my regular Art Newsletter about what I'm up to in the studio. 

Sorry for any inconvenience, but there are no shortage of good teachers out there so I'm sure you'll be grand. 

Many thanks! Vincent Keeling - vincentkeeling@gmail.com

ONLINE CLASSES

Currently working on lesson plans for the online classes, and figuring out the technology. In the meantime, I'd love to hear from you if your keen for me to get going with these, or are looking for a particular type of class. Info from you guys will help guide which way I steer the classes. Thanks! Vincent - vincentkeeling@gmail.com

 

DUBLIN OIL PAINTING CLASSES

In the process of putting together a few classes for Block-T who have now moved into a great new space at The Digital Hub in Dublin city. (The Liberties, Dublin 8) Watch this space!

WICKLOW OIL PAINTING CLASSES

New in-person classes for 2023 starting back on 18th January starting at The Schoolhouse for Art, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow. Click above for more info! The first one is a general oil painting class, or where students work on their own projects, much like I ran years before. This is listed as OIL PAINTING ART GROUP - VINCENT KEELING on the Schoolhouse’s website. And then there’s a new class in DRAWING TECHNIQUES class, which is open to beginners as well as more experienced students looking to round out their knowledge of drawing approaches and schools of thought. 

All the details are up in the website of The Schoolhouse for Art, who as in years past, are kindly hosting my Wicklow art classes.
