    Mid Coast Maine is a wonderful place to paint; we have two Studio locations with access to everything from city scenes to quaint fishing villages, working harbors and rocky coves…and oh yes…LOBSTER!!284 (2)

    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!
