Opening in Advanced/Mentoring Plein Air Painting Workshop

"Quiet Stretch" 9x12, oil

I have an opening in my August 29-September 2 advanced/mentoring workshop here on Campobello Island.  It's only $300 for five half-days.  We paint some pretty amazing scenery.  If you've been following the blog, you've seen some of it.  (The painting above is one from yesterday.)  Campobello is one-third park with plenty of nature to enjoy.  We also can paint boats and architecture, if you wish.

The workshop size is limited to four students, so there's lots of opportunity for personal attention.

For more on the workshop, visit  If you're interested, please let me know as soon as possible.

Mentoring weeks are for painters comfortable with working outdoors and in their chosen medium. In the mentoring workshop, you'll have the chance to learn the finer elements of painting, information that usually isn't handled in a regular workshop. But it's not just about advanced instruction. It's an opportunity for the serious painter to address issues that are bigger than mere craft. You might:
  • Give your art a mid-course correction
  • Create an action plan for the future
  • Define where your career is headed
Or, if you just want to paint with a "guide" without reevaluating your life, you can do that, too! You can consider it a painting holiday or artist retreat, or just a time to paint without instruction and to meet other artists.

We have a good group that week, so I hope you'll join us!
