Paint Your Own Maine Memory
Paint Your Own Maine Memory offers step-by-step art lessons in plein air watercolor, nature drawing, landscapes, and seascapes. Each lesson is geared to the individual – beginners are welcome and anyone can learn! Lessons are available for individual children and adults. Lessons also available for parent/child or two adults.
Your instructor is Emily Bracale. Emily brings a lifetime of artistry and over thirty years of teaching experience to her painting workshops. She has worked with thousands of students, K-adult, in public and private schools, camps, and as a private art teacher. Her watercolors of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park are in many private collections in the USA and abroad.
Summer Art Lessons
individual child or adult = $60
parent/child or 2 adults = $90
Payment may be cash, check, or credit card.
All art materials are included.
Painting locations are on Mount Desert Island in the Bar Harbor area, chosen by the teacher considering the weather and time of day.
In case of rain, a plein air (outdoor) workshop may be canceled, rescheduled, or an indoor painting lesson may be substituted; the same techniques will be covered.
Please wear appropriate attire for outdoor work. Suggestions: sun hat, hair tie or scarf, casual clothing for sitting on rocks, light jacket. (Maine weather changes quickly! A hot sunny day can change to windy, cool, and foggy.)
Please bring sunblock, repellant, drinking water, tissues, and snacks if you need them.
When a child takes an individual class his/her parent/guardian will accompany us and is welcome to observe or relax nearby.
