Workshop Schedule for SUMMER 2020

In 2020 I will be having a few different styles of workshops as well as the usual Plein Air Classes.

For instance the workshop in New Hampshire is at a B & B with very limited numbers of students where we will all stay and dine together and discuss art until the cows come in, a fun couple of days. This will be the second year doing this particular venue.

The Rockland Maine Plein Air Workshop is a week long class which offers a great taste of Maine not to be missed!

This year we will also be offering a Masters Class. So if you are looking to get a more advanced level of insight please check this one out. The cost is slightly higher but the class numbers are smaller meaning the amount of attention is greater and information is more advanced. It will be held through Coastal Maine Art Workshops and be run out of Belfast, ME.


Student Testimonials

Thanks for your inspiration. We are a family of educators and I know a good teacher when I see one. Hope I get to work with you again someday.

So pleased with all your hard work in helping us improve our painting and ability to "see" what is before us. Your warm, friendly nature and enthusiasm in sharing your skill and knowledge, spending time with each and every one, makes you an excellent teacher. We would love to have you back!

Thanks for being so gracious with your time! You were devoted to us all! It really was an amazing experience for me.

I said before that I learned more in 4 months from my landscape instructor than I did in 1.5 years with the portrait/still life person Iíd been going to previously. And I think doing this full time for a week with your hands on attention and support doubled what Iíve learned in the past 4 months but in just 5 days. Iím so glad I forced myself to take the leap and Iíll definitely come back another year. I spent time on the flight back writing down all the tidbits I learned from you and the experience while it was still fresh so I can go back and revisit them as needed!

Very much enjoyed your workshop. You excelled at making the rounds to the class with helpful corrections to the paintings in progress.

Thanks so much for this workshop. It was really great, I learned quite a lot and look forward to taking another the next time you are in town.

He is able to help you understand and figure out what you need to do to a painting and in the most instructional way. His advice on design of a painting is some of the best I have ever had in a workshop at my easel. Denise Rose
