MORE NEW NEWS!  If you missed signing up for Mel's workshop in Belfast, Maine this summer, don't miss the opportunity to sign up for next summer! Mel just scheduled another five-day workshop in beautiful Belfast where he will be conducting an outdoor on location workshop in July of 2018.  The town of Belfast is well known for its picturesque working waterfront and harbors with tugboats and sea captains' mansions as well as for its historic downtown.  Overlooking the waters of Penobscot Bay, which is known as "the jewel of the Maine Coast," Belfast is the perfect summer destination for a watercolor workshop!  Don't wait on this one!  See our Summer 2018 page.  Contact Coastal Maine Art Workshops by going to our '18 Contact Info page.
