Workshop: 4-day Coastal Waters Pastel Workshop & Retreat

Join us for this wonderful opportunity to paint with Jeanne on Rhode Island’s beautiful Sakonnet Point.  Jeanne is a widely recognized, published pastel artist and teacher.  Part en plein air and part in studio, this workshop allows for the best of both.  From our waterside lodging location, we’ll have access to crashing waves, harbor, dune and marsh scenes just steps away.  You’ll also learn Jeanne’s signature techniques for developing studio seascapes.


SPECIAL NOTE: This a small-group workshop (limit 12) allows for plenty of Jeanne’s at-easel attention.
