This Monhegan Island 3-day workshop invites students to participate by attending in early summer, late summer, or both. All you hardy artists who like to hike and paint on location, this retreat is for you! Discover why this island has captured the imagination of artists for over 250 years and enjoy the camaraderie of an artistic cohort. All art media and all levels of artists welcome. You will arrive on Friday morning with time to get settled before a noon group meeting and work session. Work sessions will include specific exercises to sharpen your perceptions of color, light and space. All sessions will include demonstrations, group critiques and individual instruction. Late afternoons and early evenings are yours to explore the island. You need to be physically able to walk distances on uneven terrain while carrying your easel with supplies.
Marguerite Lawler-Rohner has exhibited paintings throughout New England and New York. She holds an MFA from the City University of New York and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Marguerite was the recipient of the 2011 Stephen Pace House Artist Residency through Maine College of Art. www.margueritelawler.com

I would recommend that you work in a medium that you have prior experience in. The class is geared towards the landscape experience, not methods and materials.
