My daughter and I had a great time painting in this beautiful location. Our teacher showed us many techniques and allowed us to be creative as well. It was a great balance of being taught and still being able to express ourselves. I would highly recommend this experience!


What a fun experience ! The instructor was patient knowledgeable and really helped us find our inner artist. I would definitely do this again.


It was chilly but a wonderful experience. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to try anew experience. The beach we painted on had a awning which helped because it did rain while we were there.

Pleine air painting on a secluded beach. Even with breezy weather Joanne patiently weathered the storm with her students. So much fun and I for one cannot wait to return. Joanne was attentive and encouraging to a beginner artist. A must do when visiting beautiful Portland Maine.


I was a first time painter and thought I would give this a try. How can you lose with all of the scenic views? I was very surprised to find out that I love to paint! Everything was provided,including a snack:)After this experience,I went right to the craft store and stocked up!I have been painting ever since,and find that it is also great therapy.Jo-Ann was a lovely person,and a great teacher.Her enthusiasm for her craft was contagious.I would highly recommend this adventure!!
