Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and rhythms of life on an island on Maine’s stunningly beautiful rocky coast! You’ll find plenty of creative inspiration in the company of others who share an enthusiasm for birds and nature. We’ll explore the island’s spruce forest, tide pools, and striking vistas, take a boat trip to see puffins, and offer daily skill sessions in sketching/painting. Beginner to advanced participants welcome. We work in a fun, positive, collaborative atmosphere.
