2022: another awesome year painting the coast of Maine

Click on a thumbnail painting image to get to that instructor’s page…full of info, their thoughts and more paintings, and you can register right from there.

Consider registering even if there is a Wait List; You don’t pay till we know you are coming…

You can sign up from the Home Page or the Instructor’s page…Lodging options for both locations, Travel suggestions & an abundance of General Info are also accessible from the Home Page.

Belfast classes (limited to 14) will be at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast, 6 minutes from downtown…Rockland classes (limited to 16) are at Steel House South, a few blocks north of downtown…

And…to address a question that comes up frequently:

Beginners need to have some experience with the medium, a basic grasp of color, value etc and, drawing skills…Intermediates should have all that sufficiently in hand to be able to focus on composition and its requirements… Advanced are developing a style statement that encompasses all their experience, but want to go further…a Master Class takes the Advanced painter deeper into their own “voice” & further toward producing fully finished work.

As always, reach out if you have questions…We’re looking forward to having you join us!

Best, Lyn

    Everywhere you look, you’ll see beautiful places to paint! Art-focused Rockland is two hours up the coast from Portland, close to quaint seaside villages, lighthouses, traditional New England architecture, rock and fir-rimmed beaches and beautiful harbors. Belfast is a small, delightfully scenic city about 50 minutes further northeast along the edge of Penobscot Bay, also two hours from Portland and one hour from Bangor or to Acadia National Park. There’s plenty for a non-painting companion to do while you’re in class;  you might consider coming early or staying longer…make this a vacation as well! We have great studios in Rockland and Belfast, comfortable and well equipped, for both plein air and studio based classes. One with water views, both with plenty of individual work space, an instructor area/demo mirror and nearby parking. We generally carpool to painting sites, (we make sure you have lunch!) and from either, you’ll be within walking distance to lodging, food, galleries, shops, theaters, museums and the waterfront! Rockland and Belfast are both small cities (about 7000) with distinct personalities, Belfast is fun, quirky and visually exciting; Rockland has a lively city vibe and easy access to the beauty of the surrounding Mid-Coast area; a painter’s dream!

    We make a decision about running a class 6- 8 weeks prior…be sure to sign up early so you don’t miss out!  We’ll do everything we can to make your experience one that will send you home happy and then bring you back; many of our students and instructors have been coming here for years!  Click the Lodging or Getting Here buttons at the top of the page for current info and if you have any questions about anything,, email me… or call 207-594-4813; I’ll be happy to talk with you!  I do hope you will join us…this is a beautiful place to paint and a workshop with us is something you’ll remember with pleasure for a long time!
