Sea & Sky: Painting workshop with Carol Douglas

August 8 @ 8:00 am - August 13 @ 5:00 pm

Jack Pine Painting

Far from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor, Schoodic Peninsula has dramatic rock formations, windblown pines, pounding surf and stunning mountain views that draw visitors from around the world.

This workshop is aimed at helping painters refine their personal technique in watercolor, pastel, oils and acrylics. It will help you find your own voice and style, without becoming anyone’s clone. This is an intensive class, with morning and afternoon on-site painting sessions and lunch-time demos. Classes are kept small so every student gets the attention they deserve.

Carol Douglas has 20 years’ experience teaching students of all levels in watercolor, oils, acrylics and pastels. Her Acadia workshops are very popular.

All meals and lodging are included, as is a day trip to the harbor at Corea, Maine. Far off the beaten path, Corea is a village of small frame houses, fishing piers and lobster traps. Its working fleet bustles in and out of the harbor.

Space is limited and participants are expected to follow all current COVID-19 health and safety requirements.
