Acadian Arts Watercolor Retreat @ Harbor View House, Prospect Harbor (Apr 2024)

with Mary Laury


Your instructor, Mary Laury is an accomplished watercolorist and highly esteemed teacher. She encourages all her students to believe they can be successful. Painting is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things. If you have never painted in watercolors, we will start at the beginning. If you have painted before, you will pick up some new tips and tricks as well. We all learn together!

Escape to a Grand Victorian Inn, the Harbor View House in Prospect Harbor on the coast of Maine, with an intimate group of artist, cooks and creatives! All meals are included in the workshop fee plus special activities to extend your learning from the day’s workshops, including a private house concert by Grammy balloted sing-songwriter, storyteller, and author Gordon Ward. 

We will be scheduling time to view the Solar Eclipse at Schoodic Point, with will reach 97% of totality there!  We have special glasses for all of you.  Fingers crossed for clear skies!
