View Delphi Lodge and Estate thru an artistic lens. Absolute Beginner Workshop guests will enjoy experimenting with watercolour and Dora’s instruction, while more advanced guests are welcome to work in the medium of their choice. Bring your own materials, or we are able to arrange supply kits for beginners and experienced painters alike.
Dora was born in Dublin and today lives in the scenic town of Olhao in the Algarve Portugal, from where she will be traveling to join us. She studied at the Ontario College of Art & Design, and has worked with masters such as Roger Dellar, Grahame Booth and Dawn Oliver.
She has been exhibiting every year since 1999. Her works are in Ireland, San Diego, Dallas, Charleston, Nova Scotia and Toronto. Her works are hanging at WWF, Toronto and Brandes International.
She is also an accomplished teacher. Her Absolute Beginners workshop, which she now brings to Delphi Lodge, has been the inspiration for many to pick up a paint brush. Students begin with curiosity and trepidation and end with confidence and self-satisfaction.
Delphi Lodge is at once warm and inviting and in tempo with the thin atmosphere or the mountains that abut it, and we are excited to see Dora apply her en plein air practice and the sensibilities of her Mediterranean workshops to the west of Ireland in November light.
This Painting Holiday includes a welcome reception with Dora, a full Irish breakfast cooked to order each morning, cocktails and canapés each evening, and dinner with Dora each night at Delphi Lodge’s celebrated “Big Table.” Vegetarian and vegan options are available.
During 3 full days of instruction, you will learn, ask questions and develop your skills while having plenty of time to enjoy the relaxing Connemara countryside. eBike rentals are available to enhance your stay. Delphi Lodge is equipped with WiFi for staying on top of life’s demands, if you must.
