|A detail of the work process, MJ Angel.|
Based on the successful system established in 2018, the 2019 workshop will run over 8 days, with one day off in the middle. The studio will be open that day for students who wish to continue working.
Maestro will deliver demostrations in the morning, and just after lunch and will guide and advise students individually. He also works on his demonstration paintings in the studio while students are working, which is incredibly useful.
Class runs from 10am - 5pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided in the studio. There are several eateries and take aways within a few minutes walk from the studio, which is on the outskirts of Belfast, in the east of the city.
The BARA studio comfortably fits 16 students, each with their own dedicated lighting, wall space, chair/stool and shelves. The second room has large tables for flat work, tracing and cutting, with room for students to eat as well as a comfy seating area (The Parlour - a traditional Irish welcome space!). Students are looked after by Julie Douglas, who liases with local art stores, and arranges nights out together and is a font of local and artistic knowledge. You will feel welcome and at at home.

What is the difference between attending a workshop in Belfast, compared to elsewhere? Well, it's the Irish welcome! Students (and maestro!) love coming to Belfast. The locals are friendly, and you will be well looked after by Julie Douglas, who will do her best to accommodate your creative needs. Julie has been teaching drawing and painting for many years and is therefore your best hands-on co-ordinator. She will liaise with local art suppliers to ensure the correct materials are available and she also arranges group evenings so that students get to know each other. This is great fun and a bonus, as many students come from all around the world. It's good to make friends. One student from Dubai said "Julie thinks of the details that make all the difference". Julie has been honoured to collaborate with Mr Angel on several workshops and expects that this one will be the best yet! Hope to see you there!
