Grand Manan Island has inspired artists from Canada and the New England states for more than a century. Our genuine east coast fishing villages with weathered sheds and wharfs, dramatic lighthouses, meadows of wild flowers and rugged rock formations provide a never-ending supply of subject matter. And the island is 17 miles long and 9 miles wide so we have lots of territory to cover! Each morning we settle at our chosen location and begin a glorious day of painting with a stimulating instructor! The only interruption will be the delivery of a delicious picnic lunch. At the end of the day we join for drinks in a beautiful setting by the sea, followed by dinner and lots of good company! We offer a full week for you to concentrate on your art with no domestic or work distractions!
