Location: Roosevelt Campobello International Park, Campobello Island

$495 includes workshops and meals.  For novice and experienced painters.

Your instructor, Mary Laury is an accomplished watercolorist and highly esteemed teacher. She encourages all her students to believe they can be successful. Painting is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things.

If you have never painted in watercolors, we will start at the beginning. If you have painted before, you will pick up some new tips and tricks as well. We all learn together! All meals are included in the workshop fee as well as specially planned optional evening activities designed to extend your learning from the day’s workshops.

Step back to a time when President Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor, and their family escaped to their “beautiful little island” in the Canadian maritimes, Campobello Island. We will be exclusive guests of the international park, staying in historic Victorian cottages.

Workshop participants will explore and paint the same coastal scenery enjoyed by the summer residents at the turn of the 20th century.  All meals are included in the workshop fee plus specially planned evening activities designed to extend your learning from the day’s workshops. We convene on Friday, October 6th at 1pm with classes throughout the weekend and end on Monday, Oct 9th at 1pm.

Register for the retreat then call Sherry Mitchell at 506-752-2922 to make room reservations. Only Acadian Arts Retreats participants will be allowed to reserve overnight accommodations in the park.
