This Art Workshop offers a creative space where individuals gather to explore and enhance their artistic skills.  A group of like-minded individuals, all eager to learn and create something beautiful. Guided by the talented local artist Angela Tuite who shares her expertise and leads you through the process step-by-step. By the end of the workshop, you will proudly take home a finished canvas, ready to be showcased on your wall, a testament to your newfound artistic prowess.

Angela Tuite

Angela Tuite is a native of Westmeath, now living in Edgeworthstown, Co. Longford. She is a renowned Irish artist who has exhibited widely in Ireland and her work is held in many private collections throughout the world.
Her artistic talents have grown steadfastly over the years, being influenced by the impressionists, working mostly on both silk, canvas, wood and antique slate.
Angela facilitates workshops for both adults and children encouraging their self-expression and artistic experimentation. She has recently retired as an Art and Design Tutor with Longford Westmeath Education Training Board delivering workshops throughout the Midlands.
While the majority of her work deals with nature- based themes such as landscapes/treescapes, still life and abstract she loves to explore the magical and mythological essence of nature through her vibrant paintings. Her ideas, emotions and visual experiences are expressed through her love of colour, texture and fabric. The lustre of silk adds vibrancy to her paintings with the running and blending of colours creating unique magical effects.
