weekend destination workshop: maine
june 6-9, 2019 - sold out
“There's a quality of life in Maine which is this singular and unique. I think. It's absolutely a world onto itself.” Jamie Wyeth
Maine has a way of capturing and activating one’s inner artist. The beauty of our rocky coastline, thick pine forests, small working harbors and colorful sunrises have lured writers, photographers, painters and sculptors for generations.
Join Idyllworks of Maine to capture the beauty of both our urban and island landscapes with NY-based photographer and teacher, Mindy Veissid (http://www.mindyveissid.com/).
We will begin our long weekend in Portland, Maine’s largest city and a foodies delight, named by Bon Appetit the 2018 Restaurant City of the Year. We will enjoy a seven-course chef-designed dinner at one of Portland’s best restaurants. We will visit the eclectic Portland Museum of Art, home to a collection of European, American, and contemporary art, as well as an active rotation of exhibitions featuring local Maine artists and legendary works from around the world.
Following our day exploring Portland, we will head an hour north, to the island of Georgetown, known for its picturesque coastline and harbors, and for its history as a summer and year-round home of world–renowned artists. We will spend two nights at Grey Havens Inn, a historic bed and breakfast built in 1904, which offers “today’s modern conveniences and charm.” We will wake up to gentle yoga overlooking the Atlantic ocean, and enjoy an afternoon boat ride with Captain Ethan. We will wine and dine at Grey Havens acclaimed restaurant. Depending upon your interests and energy, a visit to Five Islands Lobster Pier or a walk along the beach at Reid State Park offer more exploration opportunities.
This is a weekend designed for adventure and relaxation; our group is limited in size and our schedule is flexible and suited to meet your needs. With Maine as our backdrop, we aim to provide a weekend that will spark your creative spirit, activate your senses and rejuvenate your soul.
The workshop is open to all levels and all cameras (including Smartphones). Non photographers are also welcome.
