Winter is the best time to take those painting classes you've always wanted to try.


“Every time I leave your class, I am so happy! I may not produce what I want all the time but I always learn something. You are an amazing teacher and I’ve had many—you’re one of the best!” (Mary W.)

I’ll be teaching an eight-week plein air class on Tuesday mornings, from 10-1. It's from my Rockport, ME studio and runs from January 8 to March 5, with a break in early February (due to my travel schedule).

This is intended primarily as an in-studio class, but when weather permits, we paint at fantastic locations around the Rockport-Rockland-Camden area. Watercolor, oils, pastels and acrylics are welcome. Because it’s a small group, I can work with painters of all levels. The fee is $267 for the eight-week session.

The exact dates are:
January 8, 15, 22, 29
February 12, 19, 26
March 5

394 Commercial Street
Rockport, ME 04856

Concentrate on painting
Painters of pastel, acrylic watercolor and oils are encouraged to broaden their skills in drawing, brushwork and color. Your own individual style will be nurtured. When the weather is wonderful, we’ll be outside; when it’s inclement, we’ll be in the studio. We’ll learn how to paint boldly, with fresh, clean color, to build commanding compositions, and to use hue and value to draw the eye through our paintings. This class is for students at any level. Class size is limited so register soon.


“This was the best painting instruction I have ever had. Carol’s advice in color mixing was particularly eye-opening. Her explanations are clear and easy to understand. She is very approachable and supportive. I would take this course again in a heartbeat.” (Carol T.)
