Watercolor Workshop on Orrs Island, Maine

Please contact me if you'd like to register and I'll send you a registration form
Space is limited and registration is on a first come first served basis
Registration deadline, May 1st 





Enjoy a watercolor workshop in a relaxing setting at the old family summer home of Margaret Arndt, known as Crow’s Nest. Crow’s Nest is nestled on top of a hill overlooking Harpswell Sound, with spectacular views from the large porch of sunset and water. Orrs Island is a wonderful place to paint because of its varied scenery of quiet coves, rugged coastline, and quintessential New England buildings. 

The workshop fee is $500 and includes watercolor instruction, lodging at Crow’s Nest (additional charge for private room), 3 breakfasts, 3 buffet style picnic lunches, and one lobster dinner. Two dinners will be on your own at one of the nearby restaurants, (unless you would like an a la carte home-cooked dinner option). The workshop will begin each day at 9am and conclude at 4pm. Each morning begins with a demonstration that addresses the specifics of the landscape at hand with regards to color, composition, and paint handling. The afternoons will be spent painting on your own with plenty of individual guidance from Marjorie and will conclude with a critique as needed. At the conclusion of each day, you’ll have free time and the opportunity to relax on the porch, and if the spirit moves you, paint the sunset! 

Registration deadline is by MAY 1st and is on a first come first served basis.
