2024 Open Air: Painting the Maine Coast with Liz Prescott (Registration CLOSED)

September 15 - September 18

Artist Liz Prescott paints outdoors on the rocks along the Schoodic Peninsula coastline.

Registration has closed for this workshop.

Join artist Liz Prescott in Acadia National Park this September for plein air painting on the rocks of the beautiful Schoodic Peninsula, with sweeping views to the west across Frenchman’s Bay to Mt. Desert Island, and southeast from Schoodic Point to the islands and ocean beyond!

This workshop is for painters with some plein air experience and basic painting knowledge. We will delve into all the elements of color and composition that lead to a dynamic painting. Part of our focus will be on the process of painting itself, from the subjects that bring you inspiration to dealing with roadblocks and how to find your focus as an artist so that you can excel at your craft. Bring your courage and creativity – anything is possible!

This workshop will take place at Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor, ME. We will stay in private rooms with shared baths on Schoodic Institute’s campus. All meals are included if you are a residential participant (residential package fee is $975.00 per participant, and includes workshop, overnight accommodations, and all meals including bagged lunches).

A painter stands in front of an easel stationed on the rocks along the Schoodic Peninsula coastline, while facing the open ocean and painting the scene.
