September 6 - 10
$775 • FULL, 1 person on wait list
This is a 5 day plein air painting workshop, geared toward intermediate painters working in oil, though other mediums are welcome. I will give at least two slide shows during the week and one painting demonstration every day. We'll paint at a variety of locations, both in town and a short drive away. The fee is $775 per person, with everyone responsible for their own transportation, lodging and meals.
I first stumbled onto Stonington many years ago when I was just learning to paint. It's a wonderful little town with a working harbor, a small downtown, and many beautiful old houses. Not as touristy as some of the other hot spots in Maine. There is a lot to paint in Stonington, though much of the scenery right in town involves architecture. Short drives in several directions can get you to more natural settings with few or no buildings.
There are no big inns or hotels in Stonington, so we'll be staying in a combination of motels, B&B's and Airb&b's to accommodate the group. I can provide a short list of recommended accommodations, including a local motel where I have some rooms reserved. Once those are full, we'll need to rely on Airb&b's, etc. I will make a suggested dinner location each night for those interested in meeting up. There are several restaurants in town, as well as a grocery store.
It's pretty easy to walk around the downtown area and find multiple painting scenes, but I imagine everyone will probably have a car, and I'm sure we'll be driving to many painting locations. Carpooling may be necessary on occasion, as some locations have limited parking. I think you could easily manage without a car, catching a ride with others in the group to painting locations outside of town when necessary.
Send me an email if you are interested. Limited to 14.
