Evening Autumn Painting Classes with Stephan Roche at Galway Arts Centre


Evening Autumn Painting Classes with Stephan Roche at Galway Arts Centre

Stephan Roche has a BA in Fine Art from Limerick School of Art and Design and a MA in History of Art and Architecture from University of Limerick. He is currently Chair of the Board of Directors at 126 Artist-Run Gallery and is a freelance curator (recent exhibitions include ‘Memory Has a Pulse’ for Galway International Arts Festival and ‘Manifold’ at Artlink Fort Dunree Co. Donegal). Stephan has worked in Education and Outreach at The Hunt Museum in Limerick, as an Exhibitions Assistant at Galway Arts Centre, and as Curator of DúnUíMhaoilíosa Military Museum in Galway.

Stephan’s own artistic practice mainly incorporates painting, drawing, and installation. He has received an AIB Drawing Award and, in the same year, a Contact Studios Bursary Award. He has exhibited work in various group shows. With a specific interest in artists’ mediums, painterly skills and the development of styles, Stephan is passionate about teaching those methods and techniques that will improve the practice of any artist, beginner or advanced.

Each week there will be a focus on a different genre (still-life, landscape, portraiture etc) with short slide-shows introducing various artists’ ways of working within these categories throughout art history. Classes are casual, fun, with both group and one-on-one learning and tuition. Some materials will be provided, and a list of suggested additional painting tools and mediums will be provided upon booking. Classes will run each Thursday for 10 weeks from 7pm – 8.30pm and cost €120. For further information and bookings please contact Galway Arts Centre.

Please note that early booking is advised as this popular class sold out completely in 2016!
