Arrival time depends upon your accommodations and travel plans. Dinner Sunday night will begin at 5 p.m. with cocktails and mingling at 4 p.m. This may change…updates will be made here and via email to participants.
Are locals welcome?
Absolutely! I hope to see many local artists in the workshop.
Must I stay at the Inn?
No, but I highly recommend it. The setting is beautiful and allows you to simply cross the street to class every day. You will be able to socialize with the other artists after class and watch the sunset over the sound. The rooms are luxurious; you won’t find accommodations for less for the quality. Plus a continental breakfast and an afternoon wine and cheese are available every day for those who stay at the Inn.
May I extend my stay?
Of course you may stay longer or arrive earlier. You will need to make those arrangements with the THI – they will be happy to extend your stay if they know in advance.
Will I have time to play?
You will have free time. Two afternoons and of course, evenings. Depending on weather, we may take brief walks to look for inspiration.
May I bring my spouse/family?
Spouses are welcome, but are on their own. There will be an additional fee for them to attend the dinners and lunch on the last day. This is not a family vacation – children are not included. This workshop is for you, the artist, to spend time focusing on your work without distraction.
What is the daily plan?
9:30 – noon – arrive, settle in, demonstration and prep work, painting
lunch (provided except Wednesday afternoon)
1 – 4 ish -painting with individual consultation
Dinner on your own (except Sun and Thurs nights)
A daily syllabus will be provided to registrants.
What will we paint?
That is up to you. Any style from abstract to realism and any subject. If desired, I will show you how to use the waterfront town as inspiration, or you can bring your own ideas and just enjoy the scenery. I will be in touch with each registered student before class to help you plan ahead.
Do I need art experience?
You should have some basic art knowledge to attend. You do not need experience in acrylic painting. “Experienced Beginniners” are welcome! The purpose of this class is to help artists of all levels to set goals and find ways to improve their skills and painting.
Why should I take this class?
- This is an opportunity to spend a week dedicated to painting
- To become better acquainted with acrylic as a medium
- To dedicate time to exploring color and the many facets of color.
- To learn new skills, absorbing technical and technique information
- To dedicate time to create several finished paintings or focus on one large project
- To learn alongside others
- To work with an engaged instructor to help you focus and set goals
Why should I come all the way to Manteo, NC?
Full day creative workshops are exhilarating and exhausting. Balancing that with:
- your luxurious room at the Tranquil House Inn for rest
- the peaceful waterfront town of Manteo, near the ocean, to help feed the soul
- a village filled with history, with plenty to see and do when you need a break
- a chance to relax and share art stories and experiences with other artists
- dining and shopping or dipping your toes in the sand
allows you to have a real art workshop/vacation retreat experience, with no distractions, and to leave with proof of your accomplishments.
I invite you to come paint with me in Manteo.
