Artist Workshop: Capture the Beauty of Acadia with Kevin Beers – CANCELLED

September 13 @ 3:00 pm - September 17 @ 4:00 pm

Due to COVID-19, this event has been CANCELLED and may not be rescheduled for 2020.  Please continue to check our website calendar as we reschedule some of these important events.

Join artist Kevin Beers for this summer retreat in Acadia. The workshop will be open to all levels of skill and experience.  Kevin will talk about how to organize and design your composition and how to mix colors to match what you see. You will sharpen your drawing skills, again training your eyes to see more clearly.  For the more advanced, you will dig deeper on those aspects and also talk about what it is that you want to capture and express.  Kevin will talk about various artists to address those issues and to find inspiration.

All levels of experience are welcome.

When Kevin Beers was in art school, abstraction was all the rage, and although Beers was clearly in possession of great talent, his professors constantly tried to dissuade him from representational painting.  Instead, listening to his own muse, Beers was drawn to the powerful realism of Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, and George Bellows, all of whom had fallen in love with the coast of Maine, especially Monhegan Island.
