Artist Retreat

Featured Artist: Mary Segars

September 29th – October 2nd, 2019

Medium: Oil or Acrylic Painting
Level: All levels
Enrollment: 16 students
Tuition: $370

This 3-day painting workshop on the waters of the Port Royal Sound will be hosted by Beaufort oil painter and Port Royal Sound Foundation Artist of the Year, Mary Grayson Segars (www.marysegars.com). Mary will provide instruction and demonstration each day and assist students with their work. All levels are welcome.

The retreat will take place at the Port Royal Sound Foundation Maritime Center. Instruction will take place in a classroom, on the docks, and on a boat. Inspiration will come from the beautiful landscapes and wildlife that the Port Royal Sound so abundantly provides. Most painting will be done in the classroom, though there is space outside for painting, weather permitting, for those who prefer to paint plein air.
