A SUMMER WORKSHOP IN THE BERKSHIRES!  Summer begins with Mel heading to Stockbridge, Massachusetts in June where he will 
be conducting a five-day, outdoor on location workshop for IS183, Art School of the Berkshires, which is situated in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts. The quaint village of Stockbridge is a renowned art and cultural center with its many galleries, historic homes, and gardens. A great summer workshop awaits!  See our '16 Contact Info. page to find out how to register. 

NEW WORKSHOP ADDED!  Due to the overwhelming response to Mel's one-day, indoor workshop at the New York Open Center in Manhattan on May 1, another one-day workshop has been added on June 5. The Open Center offers a wide variety of programs ranging from holistic health, yoga, and meditation to photography, music, and arts. This workshop is scheduled on a Sunday, which makes it convenient for those who work during the week.  See our '16 Contact Info. page.  Don't wait to register! 

PAINT IN MAINE THIS SUMMER!  Mel's summer travels will include beautiful Rockland, Maine where he will conduct a five-day, plein air workshop for Coastal Maine Art Workshops in July. Rockland is known for its picturesque waterfront, harbors, seaside villages, and lighthouses all of which make for great painting locations. Its historic Main Street has many galleries and restaurants. Rockland is an ideal summer destination for a watercolor workshop! To find out more and how to register, see our '16 Contact Info. page.
