Space Is Limited
Breathtaking is the word for the destinations visited during this week. This is a tour of jewels along the dramatic Maine seacoast while it is flooded with autumnal color. Harvest season finds the air exhilaratingly crisp setting forest canopies and blueberry fields afire with stunning reds, oranges, and yellows.
We begin this adventure visiting the highlights of Acadia National Park, one of the oldest, largest, and most beloved National Parks. A few days later, we move south through more intimate byways (some spots only the locals know about), discovering the many tucked away treasures around the Union lakes region, along the St. George River Valley, and by the dramatic coastline surrounding Pemaquid Point. We conclude with group reviews and a wine and cheese celebration in my private studio/gallery.
You may want to take extra time before or after the workshop to visit nearby islands (Monhegan, Vinalhaven, or Isleboro) or continue on to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.
"I expected pretty much just a tour with guidance available and was blown away by how much it was about creativity from the inside out, rather than the typical workshop. It was really about us and our process of seeing, looking and creating against a backdrop of fall colors. The exercises were well thought out and built on each other. This is a workshop that is really head and shoulders above all the others I've been to."
