One-Day Painting Workshops with Bobbi Heath

Join us at our new location in Yarmouth for enlightening and relaxing one-day workshops that will explore how quick small paintings can be a rewarding way to improve your painting skills. Bobbi Heath will explain techniques, materials, and a practical approach to painting daily, and will also teach you how to find time to paint regularly.  The workshop will consist of exercises focused on creating a finished painting in a short session and having fun doing it. Bobbi will demonstrate techniques that will help you get the most out of your painting time and discuss subjects and reference materials particularly suited to daily painting.

Bobbi Heath studied drawing and painting with Maine artists Suzanne Harden and Tina Ingraham. She’s attended numerous workshops, particularly enjoying those with Scott Christensen, Colin Page, Peggi Kroll-Roberts, and Marc Hanson. Bobbi paints in oils, and teaches a “Daily Painting” workshop at River Arts, in Damariscotta. Her work includes landscapes of her favorite coastal haunts in Maine, travel destinations elsewhere in the US and Europe, and paintings of still life subjects. Bobbi regularly exhibits at Yarmouth Frame and Gallery in Yarmouth, ME, River Arts in Damariscotta, ME, and the Concord Art Association in Concord, MA. She also participates in plein air events across New England.

Artist Statement:

For me painting is largely about nature and the ways we enjoy it. I find the most inspiring examples on the coast of Maine and the activities we engage in there. Boating, hiking, and cooking native specialties all inspire me. Painting en plein air (in the outdoors) is my way of getting to know a new place, and I enjoy doing that in my travels around the US and Europe. What I hope you see in my work is a wonderful reminder of somewhere you’ve been, a day that was perfect, or perhaps an enticement to find this beautiful spot and make it part of your own memories.
