Thanks for your patience as we get thing figured out!

I have learned that it doesn’t work to try and push the river…sometimes you just have to get out of the water. So…Bermuda is not going to happen in the Spring. But, both the instructors are on the Rockland 2023 schedule! Scroll down to see who we have so far…

              You can Register right now by email…just in time for Holiday gifting!                          I’ll hold your space and let you know when the Registration Form is ready!

Please ignore the heading below that says Workshops 2022… These classes are for 2023…I cannot figure out how to remove or amend it…have asked my web guy!

To address a frequent question:  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!
