The Inn Keeper has offered our students packaged specials which will include breakfast. The rates are 65 USD for an individual and 75 USD for double occupancy. This is an excellent workshop to bring a spouse along. We look forward to teaching you at this spectacular location. We will paint around the Camden Harbor which has many schooners and boats of all types, as well as nearby Rockport Harbor, and numerous locations near the inn.
- Location: High Tide Inn Camden Maine
- Workshop dates: 9.12.11 - 9.16.11
- While we recommend making your own painting medium of 1 part Stand oil to 4 parts Thin-X, you may use whatever painting medium you prefer.

An empty plastic bottled water container works well.
