Maine Workshop 2013

Mark your calendars!  My 2013 summer workshop in beautiful Boothbay Harbor, Maine will be held
from September 9th - 13th.  Sign up now so you don't miss out!

The workshop headquarters will be in the Lions Club in West Boothbay Harbor.  It is a spacious facility with plenty of room to spread out and paint.  An overhead mirror allows students to view my demonstrations.  There are also kitchen facilities if you want to bring soft drinks or snacks.

There are plenty of motels, B & B's, and inns in the area.  A half block from the Lions Club is the Beach Cove Resort which is perched high above lovely West Harbor Pond. ( ) Other accommodations can be viewed by Googling the Boothbay Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

The workshop day begins with a brief overview of the day's lesson.  Then we will procede to one of many beautiful painting locations.  Ocean Point is popular with tourists and painters alike. 

 I will do a demonstration painting while referring to the day's lesson and other topics dealing with procedures, techniques and possible problems.

After the demo, students will be free to paint while your instructor remains available for any questions or suggestions should you need them. 

In case of rain, I have many exercises and  painting techniques that can be done indoors.  Lessons on values, negative painting, creating interesting shapes and color choices will be discussed on those days or on location.

At the end of the day, we will return to the Lions Club for a brief critique which will focus mainly on the topic for the day. 

Most students find that time away painting for five straight days improves their paintings immensely.
I hope to be a catalyst in jump starting your progress towards successful paintings!

Tuition for the five day workshop is still only $400.  Checks may be sent to:

Happy Painting!
