I am pleased to announce an addition to the 2012 summer program.
Daniel Corey, a personal favorite, will be here on July 19 and 20th from 9 AM - 3 PM.
Space is limited, and I expect this workshop to fill up quickly. To register, contact Dan directly at

We hope to see you there!

Well known Maine painter, Daniel Corey, has been added to the list of artists giving workshops at Chicken Coop Studio.

Inspired by light quality, color harmony, and abstract shapes, Dans paintings are created from direct observations en plein air. He enjoys the challenge of painting nontraditional views and subjects. He finds beauty in them along with what he interprets as "what makes Maine, Maine".

Selected to be the 2009 Monhegan Artist in Residence, Dan is a traditional painter influenced by Robert Henri and the Ashcan School and rooted in the aesthetic values of the impressionists of the Cape Cod School of Art. Dan also participated in "Creative Convergence", a plein air painting trip to Mexico, which was covered by American Art Collector Magazine, among others. Daniels work has been featured in a number of New England Galleries and Museums.

July 19 & 20 Dan Corey will be giving a plein air workshop at Chicken Coop Studio.
The hours are 9 AM - 3 PM with a lunch break.
The price is $150 for both days,
or $100 for one day.

 In addition to the workshops at the Peninsula Art School in Fish Creek, and the 2 day workshop at the Studio of Fine Arts in Lima, I am offering several 3 day workshops in my chicken coop studio. The studio was renovated last summer and is my space on the Fall Art Tour. Having the chicken coop, complete with chandelier, is a great home base to grab some shade and critique between paintings. 
Value and design are the topic of the first workshop, which will give a great foundation to explore outdoor color in the second. I'm beginning to prepare lesson plans for each workshop to make sure there isn't a dull moment, and there is a few spaces left for each. For the schedule, and more info, please give the images a click! My email is blksquirl85@yahoo.com
