                        Inside tip: If the only workshop you want says “Wait List Only,” take a chance and sign up!                                                We  won’t charge you till we know you are coming and there are often cancellations; you never know!

 I will be closing the program for good Oct 13…with regrets, but also relief…it really is time!

I’ll post updates here and in our newsletters…I’ll have more to say I’m sure…Classes are filling steadily, so do register as soon as you can. I hope to see as many of you here this season as the classes will holdit would be great to finish up with a flourish of new and former students!

Thanks, Lyn

All classes are plein air and based at our Rockland waterfront studio, just a few blocks north of Rockland’s downtown, and close to a variety of quintessential coastal painting sites: our famous busy harbors, quaint rural fishing villages, old barns, historic architecture, and pine-rimmed rocky beaches. You will not want to leave!

Rockland’s Main Street is full of galleries, shops and fine places to eat, plus two exemplary art museums, the Farnsworth and Maine Center for Contemporary Art.

Bringing a companion? We’re also close to golf courses, hiking and biking trails, swimming, sailing and kayaking, two fascinating museums for the sail, car and plane enthusiasts and both the School for Furniture Craftsmanship and Maine Media College.

The Registration Form is available by clicking on the button above and on your instructor’s page; If you have a problem with it, please get in touch…happy to help!

As always, reach out if you have questions…or problems with the form!

We’re looking forward to having you join us!

Best, Lyn

Not sure what level class to choose? 

Beginners should have some familiarity with the medium, an elemental grasp of color, value etc and, so important, basic drawing and simple perspective skills. If you’re shaky, make time before your workshop to learn and practice! Intermediates should have all that sufficiently in hand to be able to focus on composition and its development. Advanced Painters are developing a style statement that encompasses all their skills and experience, but want to go further. A Master Class takes the Advanced Painter deeper into their own “voice” & further toward producing fully finished work.

                                      Plein Air painters should bring appropriate gear packed so they can easily handle all of it on their own.                                          If you are new to P/A, ask us for input and practice, practice, practice before you come!
