Maine coastMaine house viewMaine SunsetMargaret Arndt is sharing her old family summer house right on the water known as “Crow’s Nest” nestled on the top of a hill overlooking Harpswell Sound, a part of Casco Bay, on Orr’s Island in ME. Crow’s Nest has seven bedrooms and two bathrooms that can accommodate 12/13 people. An open porch faces west providing a spectacular view of the sunset and oftentimes Mt. Washington in NH over 100 miles away.

Breakfast, a la carte take-out Lunch, and Dinner will be prepared each day.

Unless specifically noted as a workshop or class in technique, all of my classes focus on helping you find your own unique artistic expression,  your own language of color and form and marks on a surface.  I combine meditation, guided visualization, examples of other’s work, and more, with my own intuitive talents to help you discover what will give you the most fulfillment in your expression.   Your art is a powerful healing tool for your life.  Art can help us to trust our inner guidance.  I will help you to discover your own inner wisdom and archetypes.

Those that may benefit from attending a workshop with me include:

  • those who have been creative in the past but find it difficult to enter back into their process
  • those would have always wanted to “make art” but have been discouraged by others or failing to achieve their own standards or are experiencing a great deal of fear around stepping forward
  • those who like my style and would like to learn how I approach my art

Here in this magical sacred spot on the ocean we will incorporate some meditation and relaxation time in order to invite all sides of ourselves to join in the mystery of allowing what wants to emerge.

This is a nurturing NO PRESSURE few day Maine porch s allowing you to relax and sink into your joy in making art.  You are welcome to work in any medium you wish, bearing in mind that we will be carrying our materials to different locations in nature at times.

We will mix up working from our imaginations with working “plein air” (from life).  The Maine coast is one of my own favorite places to make art.  Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but the ions from the ocean are cleansing and stimulate our creative processes.  On the days we work on location we will consider composition, color, light in capturing a moment in time.

I will offer plenty of demos with information on technique and different ways of approaching your art.  We will join in circle and share art, laughs and chocolate.
