About the August workshop:
The workshop begins on Sunday at 5pm with a brief orientation followed by a group dinner (not included in the workshop fee) at a local restaurant in Stonington.

All other days will include afternoon painting on your own and 2-3 group critiques as needed. Monday-Thursday includes a picnic lunch.

ORRS ISLAND WORKSHOP:
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. Orr’s Island is a wonderful place to paint because of its varied scenery of quiet coves, rugged coastline, and quintessential New England buildings.
The workshop includes watercolor instruction, lodging at Crows Nest*, breakfast, buffet style picnic lunches, welcome dinner, 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! Please contact me for flyer and registration form.

This workshop is conducted on location on Deer Isle in Stonington, Maine. Deer Isle is a magical place with its many islands amid sparkling blue waters dotted with windjammers and colorful lobster boats...
There are moss covered spruce forests and striking peach
granite outcroppings, all making for an inspiring place to paint
This is the yellow house everyone paints, but who can resist?
I'd like to be here right now!
