  • Mid-Coast Maine at Pemaquid Point, one of Sally's favorite places, will inspire your paintings, as it has for generations of artists. Known for its picturesque lighthouse, Pemaquid  Point offers a variety of perfect views for painting: bay overviews, a wealth of color, Maine subjects from the rocky coast, crashing surf and local harbors - under serene and magnificent sunsets - to a variety of fishing boats, sail boats, and pleasure crafts to fill your sketchbook, canvas or paper. The Colonial New England charm with flora and fauna abounding, give yourself the overwhelming joy to experience the light and color that has inspired artists like Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, and offers you a breathtaking inspiration for your brushes to capture. The freshness of the air in September is crisp and clean and the sun still warm and bright.


    To expand your creativity in your chosen medium, come join us in this workshop to paint outdoors in the company of artists like yourself who have some drawing and painting experience. Whether your favorite medium is watercolor, oil, or acrylic, Sally will help you develop your potential. Our day  will begin with a short demonstration and instruction. Throughout the day your individual instruction will be tailored to strengthening your own techniques and expression.


    An expert colorist, Sally Caswell has had over 30 years of experience in teaching painting and color theory professionally at RISD, UMass, CCRI and in Museum and art school courses. Sally will help you to effectively utilize color theories to create living expression and experience the passion of creating works of art outdoors. Daily individual and group critiques will help you with your compositional and design choices. By showing you options to unify your inspiration with your techniques, Sally’s goal is to share the joy of creation and give you confidence.
