Dooner and Ramírez will introduce participants to the distinct and unique setting of the Wild Atlantic Way, still untouched by modernity and industrial development. Each morning there will be a lecture, followed by private excursions to a choice outdoor setting. The artists will visit you at your selected setting and offer words of encouragement and advice in order to aid in your creation. The workshop will conclude in a group exhibition.

En-suite rooms, all ground transport, and all meals prepared by private Irish Chef showcasing local products are included in the cost of the program. The cost also includes dedicated class time with Dooner and Ramírez,  and a masterclass with local Irish guest artists.

Space in the course is limited, so apply early. Application deadline is March 1.
