I wanted to reach out and share the workshops we have planned in the New England area for this Summer. I am delighted to be working with 3 artists as workshop leaders: Ray Hassard, Kirk Larsen and Ken Shuey. All will work with you in the medium of your choice aboard Airielle, a wonderful classic wooden sailboat.
This will be an exciting twist in comparison to the workshops you may have attended in the past. The student/instructor ratio is very low, we'll eat well, and take you to spots you just can't reach other than by boat. And it is really nice to unwind at the end of the day and recount the interesting stuff we did all day. All of these workshops are in reasonably protected waters, and the Summer season weather is typically very cooperative.
The following is a very brief listing of each workshop. Please follow the links to my website for more detail. The rates for the expeditions cover your bunk, food and workshop tuition.
Also, I am happy to pull together a 3 to 4 day painting excursion on another date, so gather up 4 or 5 of your painting buddies and we'll cook up your own expedition (see the sample trip ideas on my website).
June 29 to July 2 - Greenport, NY to Mystic Seaport and back to Greenport w Kirk Larsen - 4 days. $1,080
July 21 to 24 - Penobscot Bay - Camden, ME to Matinicus Island and Vinalhaven w Ray Hassard - 4 days. $1,180
July 28 to Aug 1 - Penobscot Bay - Brooklin, ME to Acadia National Park w Ray Hassard - 5 days. $1,225
September 4 - Clinton, CT to the Thimble Islands w Ken Shuey - 1 day. $250
September 5 - Clinton, CT to Falkner Island w Ken Shuey - 1 day. $250
Please join us! We'll get two sessions in each day, and come home with a pochade box full of great work.
