Acadia National ParkAug 21-25, 2017 | Bernard, ME

There is no state like Maine. Bernard is just outside of the Acadia National Park, considered one of the most beautiful parks in America. Rocky cliffs and beaches, lush forests, boats and harbors, and of course, Lobster! This is one of my favorite places to teach and paint.

ChathamSeptember - Painting the Impressionist Landscape Workshop, Chatham, MA
Sponsored by the Chatham Creative Arts Center, 154 Crowell Rd, Chatham, MA 02633
Contact: Angela Zoni Mault, or call 508-945-3583.

I lived on Cape Cod Massachusetts for 40 years, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Ocean, dunes, gardens and wildflowers, breathtaking views: a painters paradise. I moved because the summer humidity wrecked havoc on my asthma. Living in Arizona I am asthma free. However, if someone waved a magic wand and took my asthma completely away, the only place I would move to would be Chatham. It is everything that is wonderful about Cape Cod and even more!!
