Always dreamt of painting plein air on the beautiful coast of Maine? Le Vatout's packages offer the quiet comfort of a small Bed & Breakfast far away from the maddening crowds, fresh, fabulous local food and the tutelage of your own, private guide. We've designed this mini-vacation for two - a couple, two friends, a mother/daughter team - but it can easily be expanded to a group of four. Either way you can be sure you'll have that creative uplift or that intimate encounter with nature that takes you beyond yourself and lets you return home enriched, relaxed and ready to tackle your life again.
For this package we have managed to persuade one of the most promising young artists of this region to share his secrets and his passion. Whether you're a beginner or not, when you're out with Dan Corey on your own private jaunt, you'll get your fill of spectacular scenery, hands-on advice and, well, plein air oil painting. Selected to be the 2009 Monhegan Island Artist in Residence, Dan's work has been featured in a number of New England galleries and museums. Enthusiastic and personable, Dan is excited about the small-group concept of Le Vatout's workshops. We know he will bend over backwards to make sure you "get it".
The price for two is $1300 ($650 per person) and includes 3 fabulous days of private instruction, 4 nights of double-occupancy lodging, 4 breakfasts, and 3 delicious box lunches. The date is your choice! Details: www.levatout.com/oil_painting_workshop
