MasterClass May 2021

For this new May MasterClass I invite the Dutch (Nederlanders) and Germans, Belgiums, French or artists from the UK mostly because of the times we're in. Flying here might not be ideal, but our neighbour-countries-artists can take their car. B&Bs and hotels (in Katwijk aan Zee) are open.

MasterClass at the Beach: May 5 - 6 - 7 Wed-Fri

Enjoy a Spring Beach, and if we're lucky we might get to paint children playing in the water as it is Spring break. Here there are little restrictions at the beach. We'll be breathing in fresh air and feel the winds through the hairs. B&B's are open so you can make it a little vacation. My group will be kept small: 3-5 artists can join this class.

MasterClass by Roos Schuring

“We'll have Lots of Paintings done, you could be able to fill an entire Exhibit with those!”

Fearless - All Weather - Painting!

In this 3-Day Masterclass You'll Receive the Complete System and Method that took me a Decade to Perfect. It's Plein-air Painting under unpredictable circumstances. In storm & rain, viewing rainbows, and big skies, with this system we can continue painting in 99% of the weather we'll get.

This course is excellent for the professional wanting to gain more fearlessness, or directness, painting the "4 seasons in 1 day" experience you can have in Holland in Spring or Autumn and for the people who need that SPARK again.

In the recent years of teaching by the ocean, I found these to be the most important topics which we'll discuss, experiment with, and which I'll also show you in the daily 20 min. demonstrations:

This Class Teaches

  • How to Paint Water, Waves and Movement

Capturing The Moment

Painting Seascapes - Capturing the Beauty

The most direct way to portray an Ocean, Beach and Sky, is standing there, viewing it all eye to eye and putting it in Paint. 

Painting & Problem Solving

In outdoor painting one needs to make bolder decisions and make them quicker. The moment moves fast, and capturing the glimpses of 'awesomeness' is in reach when you adjust How you paint. I teach my students to become More Quick, More Bold and More Confident in Painting the Moment.

The Core of What I Teach

Simplify Reality

Learn How to Improve Your Paintings by Simplifying the Complex. Learn How to Look at Nature to Capture the Very Essence.

Create Harmony

Learn How to Harmonize All Different Elements in Your Painting. Tips and Tricks to Unify Elements and to Better Your Compos.

Be More Loose

Fearless Painting is More Enjoyable. Learn How to Let Go, how to use your Energy and Control the Bigger Picture.

Plein-air Painting is Top-Class Sport

Many Artists have joined me over the years. The solutions they found at the beach, they could apply to their painting development in general. 3-Days can do a lot of good.

It's also possible you'll find out Plein-air painting is not for you. Because not all will continue on this road, and that's of course very OK too. 

About Your Stay

B&B or Hotel

You can Stay in a B&B or Hotel near the Boulevard. We'll be Painting at the Beach of Katwijk aan Zee - The Netherlands. Artists living here often drive back and forth. Both are fine options. But to have that Holiday feeling + more easy living you can sleep and eat very well in Katwijk aan Zee, it has many Restaurants & B&Bs.

Car, Plane or Boat

The British often take their own car, taking the boat to the Netherlands. Flying here is best to Schiphol Airport. Amsterdam is about 40 minutes away from Katwijk aan Zee.

Art Museums

Katwijk has a great Art Museum, Amsterdam has many, The Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum for example.


During the MasterClass I teach in English & Dutch. In the past Katwijk has accommodated Artists from 9 different countries so far!


You can join when you have Experience in Painting, it's ok if you have never painted outdoors before. This Class is not for Total Beginners. For example: you'll need to know the basics of Color Mixing. The More Experience you have the More you'll Benefit from this MasterClass. 

The Start Guide

The Start Guide is about All Gear, Color List, Smart Tricks and is Fear Fighter. (Only for Participants.)


This last year I've put a lot of focus & effort in making sure your preparation is 100%. This way you'll benefit most and can skip the 'gear struggles' putting your energy where it counts: Happy Painting!



When You Join a Master Class you immediately get access to the Preparation material, Dates, Painting Location, Meeting place. The Start Guide is then sent to you and you can plan your Trip.

See You At The Beach!

"How do I express what this workshop has meant to me - it is very emotional ! You are a very special and powerful woman and I have great admiration for your strength of character and following your own intuition. The first time I saw one of your paintings and zoomed in on the brush strokes - it took my breath away!
After this week with you, I have learnt to see with new eyes - to recognize the fear in me and push it aside. THANK YOU and again- thank you.  I will be back to study with you again - I can hardly wait.”


“Ik wilde je nog even bedanken voor je enthousiasme, inspiratie en goede adviezen tijdens de workshop. Het waren 3 fantastische dagen.”


“Juste un petit mot pour vous dire combien j'ai apprécié cette belle rencontre avec vous.
Cette immersion m'a redonné goût et inspiration pour la peinture de plein air. Je fais pour le moment des choses assez insipides sur place que je déstructure et re-barbouille au gré de mes envies de couleur à la maison, pour arriver à un tableau. En attendant de pouvoir le faire in situ, mais je crois que j'avance! J'apprivoise le côté "fearless" de la peinture. C'est super!”


“I hope I can come to another workshop next spring. I feel I really learnt a lot and made progress with my painting. As well as now finding there is absolutely no excuse not to go out in any weather!”


“Nogmaals heel erg bedankt voor je inspirerende cursus, Roos. Daar was ik aan toe, want ik wist het even niet meer zo goed met dat "schilderen" van mij. Niet alleen heb jij mij een aantal heel belangrijke zaken verteld (die ik zeer goed zal onthouden), maar nog veel meer heb je mij weten te inspireren en begeesteren voor het plain air schilderen en het schilderen in het algemeen, en daar ben ik je heel dankbaar voor.”


“Want to thank you again for your great workshop. Sold the three monday paintings with fishermen!”


“Thank you so much for your comments , you are inspirational and generous with your advice and experience, I believe this has given me the confidence to make progress in my painting and projects in my life. We had such a great week working with you, so thank you once again.”
