Plein Air Painting Workshops Downeast Maine (Lubec)

For many summers, I've taught plein air painting workshops on Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada.  However, if you're from the U.S., this requires a passport.  Unhappily, each year I hear from painters who'd love to study with us but don't have passports and so can't join us.

This year, I'm pleased to announce that all workshops will be held in Lubec, Maine.  No passport? No problem!

The historic fishing village of Lubec offers a wealth of material for the painter.  But it's not just about boats, wharves and lighthouses.  If you prefer natural scenery, there's plenty of that, too.  Think bold cliff overlooks, cobble beaches, storm-blasted trees and crashing surf.

This doesn't mean you can't visit Campobello Island, though.  In fact, I encourage you to bring your passport if you have one.  Because the workshops are half-days, you can explore Campobello in the afternoons.  If you didn't get your fill of painting in our morning session in Lubec, you can paint more on Campobello -- and I'll be happy to critique whatever you do the following day.

I've put together the following short video to show you a little of what Lubec has to offer.  If you'd like more information, please visit or
