Come join me me for a watercolor workshop this summer in Maine, Giverny, or Tuscany!

June 19-24/2016 Color and Light 
 August 28th-Sept 1st  Watercolor Workshop (all levels)
Orrs Island Workshop 7/10-14/2016

TUSCANY  9/17-24/2016 (3 openings)
This will be a relaxing and inspiring painting workshop and artists’ re-treat in the Chianti Region of Tuscany, Italy. We will stay in an authentic 12th century monastery, San Fedele, which has been recently restored to modern first class lodging accommodations while retaining an old-world authenticity. We will paint daily, either on site or on short field trips to view charming villages, olive groves and the beautiful, romantic Tuscan country- side. We also have our own chef who cooks amazing Tuscan cuisine.
The workshop is offered through Il Chiostro. Artists of all levels and mediums are welcome and will leave enriched by this experience.

Please join Concord Art Association and Marjorie Glick for a plein air painting trip in June 2016 to Giverny, France where we will have exclusive access to paint in Monet's garden. All mediums welcome! To register for the trip, please email Allyson Simes at: or call 978-369-2578.

Below are a few favorite photos from my workshops. Its a wonderful gift to spend a week painting in beautiful place. I love teaching the workshops. You'll have a great time and learn a lot!

Lupines in Stonington are everywhere in June and can be enjoyed from right outside the post office on a bench!

Windjammers go by all day - this one seen from our morning painting spot.
