We make a decision about running a class about 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 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!

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 tiny, scenic city about 50 minutes further up Penobscot Bay’s Coast, an hour from Bangor or Acadia. There’s plenty for a non-painting companion to do while you’re in class; you might consider making this a vacation!
We have great studios in both Rockland and Belfast, with water views, plenty of individual work space, an instructor demo mirror and lots of parking. We generally carpool to painting sites, (we make sure you have lunch!) and you can walk to lodging, food, galleries, shops, theaters, museums and the waterfronts from each of the studios! Both are small (7000) cities with distinct personalities, (Belfast has the county’s only traffic light…Rockland has a few more!) a bit of a city vibe downtown, and easy access to the beauty of the surrounding Mid-Coast area; it’s a painter’s dream!
