The Schoolhouse for Art set in the picturesque village of Enniskerry run Art Classes weekdays and at weekends in different disiplines with excellent tutors. Oil painting, Pastels, Life drawing are just some of the courses on offer. Brenda Malley who teaches oil painting seascapes and landscapes is very relaxing and enjoyable. I would highly recommend the schoohouse for art for weekdays and weekend getaways.
Lots of lovely places to eat nearby and Powerscourt estate is just up the road.

Just a quick note to say how much my Dad, brothers and I enjoyed the wood carving weekend at the Schoolhouse. Con, the instructor was a real gentleman and made the weekend a great fun learning experience - please do pass our thanks on to him. He was as excited as any of us about everything we did and shared his knowledge and skills with us for every piece. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and highly recommended !.

Fantastic weekend workshop with Brenda. She is extremely generous with her time and gives great feedback. She is very hands on and starts each class with a demonstration on how she approaches her work. As a beginner to oil painting this was so informative and she took the fear out it. I will be back and would highly recommend her workshops to everyone.

I have just finished a very enjoyable two day course with Brenda. The class was very relaxed but very informative. Brenda is a great teacher and very generous with her time and knowledge. I would highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to try palette knife or for anyone wanting to improve their skills.

The Schoolhouse is in a beautiful setting within the village of Enniskerry, with good food and coffee served in the local cafes.

Thanks very much Brenda and Neil
