What you'll do

"Watercolor Greeting Cards"
** New Guidelines**
We are all required to wear a mask all day. I provide masks in case you do not bring one. I take everyone's temperature (including my own) with no-contact thermometer before class. We meet on-site, not at my gallery. Class canceled in case of bad weather, as we paint outdoors. Experiencers must wash hands prior to class, at the lunch break, and at end. Hand sanitizer is recommended during class. You may wear gloves. I set chairs out at location, at recommended distances, and I maintain safe distance. If you feel ill, you MUST CANCEL. All above are Airbnb Experience requirements. In case of non-compliance, I cancel class immediately. Thank you for understanding!


I guide you in the set-up and creation of your hand-painted watercolor greeting cards. You will take all of your creations home with you.
Age Range:
8 - 108
Skill Level:

Please bring: Your Acadia National Park Pass, plus
lunch, reference photos of landscapes, natural objects or people (optional), hat, sunscreen, bug stuff, jacket, water bottle, and wear comfortable waterproof shoes

I am a professional painter and teacher with many years of experience, and host an on-site gallery. I love guiding folks of all ages in learning -- or relearning -- skills in painting and drawing nature. It is amazing to see the transformation, as students learn mastery of tools and techniques, and take home their own artwork!
I learned from masters -- Max Ginsburg, Sebastian Capella, and the École des Beaux-Arts, ENSAD, Art Students League of New York, and La Jolla Arts. I'm a Finalist in ARC, and have an MA with Distinction in Digital Media from London Met.

Mary went above and beyond to ensure that my friend and I were able to create memorable watercolor paintings. She explained techniques and guided us to believe in ourselves. We completed art that will always remind us of our visit to Southwest Harbor ME.
