Hosted by The Gallery at Somes Sound, August 1-4, The Ascending Landscape with Donald Demers is designed to provide direction for the individual artist; recognizing where they are in their artistic evolution and move them to a higher level of consciousness and execution.  It will address all creative components of the artistic process such as: idea, design and composition, draftsmanship, color and value arrangement and manipulation etc.  It will further include discussions about the philosophy and intention behind the works. 

Don will provide daily demonstrations, brief visual exercises and conduct extensive individual instruction with each student.  

This workshop is intended for experienced painters and will focus on plein air painting at Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine. The workshop accommodates 12 participants; early registration is recommended by contacting Tyra Hanson at
