Acadian Arts Fall Retreat at Grey Havens Inn: Watercolor Painting with Mary Laury

with Chris Toy


This will be a fantastic time with an opportunity to choose one of three workshops. “Freeing your creative spirit”, will help you access your authentic self and creative expression using your intuition. Kat Logan will lead you through an opening process and explore your creative self using different materials and exercises. Also being offered is Asian Fusion Cooking with Chris Toy and Watercolor with Mary Laury. This three day workshop will be offered at the beautiful Grey Havens Inn and Restaurant in Georgetown, Maine. Lunches and dinners will be prepared and shared by the cooking class. Each day will begin with a morning meditation offered by Kat and end with a special activity planned by your instructors including a special house concert by Kat on Wednesday evening. Watercolor Painting is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things. Instructor Mary Laury has been recognized for her work by the Maine Arts Commission. Workshop participants will do landscapes and seascapes in this 4 session course. 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! We'll begin with a demo and lesson. Weather permitting, we will go outside for plein air painting. This Inn has a breathtaking view, visible from the lawn, porch, and parlor. Later in the week we'll finish up with show and tell. We will do studies of sky, water, and rocks, culminating in a finished painting (or two) of a seascape. Materials will be provided, but bring what you have. Mary will contact each participant with a list of optional supplies. For more about Mary visit her website
