Transform your plein air painting skills in this week-long workshop on the beautiful coast of Maine.

The Maine coast is an artist’s paradise, with its stunning scenery, vibrant colors, and ever-changing light. In the height of summer, the days are long and sunny, and the nights are cool and refreshing, providing ideal conditions for plein air painting. Under the guidance of an internationally acclaimed artist, you will learn to capture the beauty of the Maine coast in your paintings.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Elevate your plein air painting practice with advanced techniques and strategies
  • Master the art of composition to create stunning and engaging paintings
  • Develop your own unique voice and style as an artist
  • Paint confidently and boldly with fresh, clean color

Register today and start your journey to mastery!

Class size is kept small to allow for personal interaction and individual guidance. You will be coached and challenged to find your own voice and style without becoming anyone’s clone. These are intensive sessions, with morning and afternoon on-site painting and lunch-time discussions and demos.
