Open Air: Painting the Maine Coast with Liz Prescott

September 17, 2023 - September 20, 2023

Detail of painting by Liz Prescott of the Maine coastline.

Join Liz at Acadia 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 really excel at your craft. Bring your courage and creativity and anything is possible. Note: We will stay in private rooms with shared baths at the Schoodic Institute (9 Atterbury Circle in Winter Harbor, ME).

All meals included if you are a residential participant.
