Skip Lawrence’s Maine Workshop Information 2019

Philosophy- I believe that our images come from our thinking not from our hands. Techniques and materials are the tools we use to present our ideas. It is what we think about that gives our art passion, uniqueness, personality, and identify. It is more difficult to paint like someone else than to create like self. Students who stop thinking about how other artist work and what new materials to buy are the most creative and happy.

How the Class Works- To help you find your most honest style I will act as coach, technical advisor, and conscience. This process begins with a 20 minute private consultation in which we look at your most recent work and discuss your immediate and long term goals. I believe this to be the most insightful, meaningful and productive time we share. This is where the real work of creating begins. Please bring 10 or so digital images of your work (flash drive, computer, iPad all work. Please, no slides or dvd disks).

Each day at 9AM I will make a presentation featuring artist, ideas, and even some techniques. There will be two class critiques one on Wednesday at 9 AM and one on Friday at 2 PM. I will offer at least 2 demonstrations to be announced.

This is an art workshop and all media are allowed. While there is a small art supply store in Damariscotta it is best to bring whatever you will need and plenty of it. Bring more than you think you will need as you do not want to get on a roll and be stopped by lack of materials.

Lodging – Most people stay at the Hotel Pemaquid, the workshop headquarters. This is where the class meets. Many students choose to paint outdoors on the hotel grounds nestled under a tree where the smell of the sea, sounds of bell buoys, and touch of Maine breezes inform our thoughts and support our positive emotions.

Transportation – A car is the most convenient means of transportation. Portland Jetport is the nearest terminal. There are car rental and shuttles available from the airport ( about 1 and a half hours drive).
