Acadian Arts Retreat Harbor View House Prospect Harbor Sept 1-4

  • April 04, 2023

Escape to a lovely Victorian Inn, the Harbor View House in Prospect Harbor on the coast of Maine with an intimate group of artist, cooks and creatives!

Join Mary Laury, watercolor instructor, and Chris Toy, cooking instructor, for four days of indulging in your choice of painting or cooking in an idyllic natural setting. 

Choose between Watercolor Painting or International Cooking.

Watercolor Painting is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things. If you have never painted in watercolors, we will start at the beginning. If you have painted before, you will pick up some new tips and tricks as well. We all learn together! Workshop participants will explore and paint the coastal scenery enjoyed by the summer residents at the turn of the 20th century.

Your cooking instructor, Chris Toy is the author of 6 popular cookbooks, a private chef, and has taught Asian fusion cooking for several Maine community education programs. Cooking students will learn how to  prepare a variety of recipes from Asia, Europe, and the Americas incorporating traditional and local ingredients. Each meal will actively engage cooks with the tools, techniques, and stories behind the  dishes being created.

All meals are included in the workshop fee as well as specially planned optional evening activities  designed to extend your learning from the day’s workshops.

$495 includes workshops and meals
