Open Air: Painting the Maine Coast with Liz Prescott

September 12, 2021 - September 15, 2021

Join Liz Prescott 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.

Open to both oil and acrylic painters.  Supply list provided with registration.

Liz is a hands on teacher and a masterful colorist with a true passion for art and teaching.  Whether you are a new or experienced painter, Liz has the unique ability to meet you where you are and grow your painting practice.  I have worked with her for over 6 years and am still learning new techniques and ‘pearls’ and know that she has helped me find my voice as an artist. – Amy K, Freeport
