  • WORKSHOPS – 2020



    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 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. Both have water views, plenty of individual work space, an instructor area and 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 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 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!
