June 2 - 8, 2018! 


Sorry, but the workshop for this year is full.


 This past  summer's workshop was amazing! Everyone produced some fantastic paintings, a couple of finished pieces, but many really good starts. We were very lucky with the weather and had only a couple of chilly, drizzly days. The rest were a bit overcast or sunny. All beautiful!

Lunchtime at Lobster Cove (lunch this day and one other is supplied by me)

Group painting a figure on the Island Inn lawn.

Painting on an overcast day on Swim Beach


 Group having breakfast on a beautiful sunny day at the Inn

Join Frank in painting one of the most beautiful and painted islands in the world. Frank will give instruction on how to create a composition, block in a painting, and then refine your piece using a combination of value, color and drawing. Oils, Acrylics and Pastels.

A quick demonstration on the first day will get everyone going, and then the whole week will be spent painting one beautiful place after another.

The week's schedule will change a bit with the weather.

Saturday:   Settle in and then meet up for wine and hors d'oeuvres, to discuss the week to come.
