Aidan Crotty (b.1980) Waterford.
Received a BA (Hons), Fine Art Painting at Crawford Collage of Art and Design, Cork.
Aidan currently lives and works in rural west Sligo where he focuses primarily on observational painting.
Aidan has exhibited extensively across Ireland and his work is held in both private and public collections including the Office of Public Works and the AXA Insurance Art Collection.
In this three-day workshop we will be investigating different strategies in observational painting. We will examine how to plan and execute a painting in a natural and logical process, taking our paintings through systems of layer building over a period of days. Informed by our visible surroundings within the landscape and on still life at Artform studios, Aidan will work alongside participants in order to impart his experiences through demonstration and discussion.
Aspects such as surface and ground, subject and environment, measuring and scaling, palette and methods of paint application will be our main focus over this course.
* Note – course cost does not include accommodation. Artform also provide an artist accommodation package.
Details on art materials required to participate in the course will be provided after signing up to the course.
