Step back in time at the historical Claremont hotel nestled in the fragrant pine trees of coastal Maine. This charming small hotel overlooks the scenic Somes Sound in Southwest Harbor on Mt. Desert Island, 30 minutes from Bar Harbor, and just 70 miles east of Bangor airport. Famous for Acadia National Park, Mt. Desert Island offers something for everyone.

The island has an expansive sandy beach adjacent to a jagged coastline where visitors marvel at the raging surf spewing water up into a deep cavern called the “Blow Hole.” Rise early one morning for sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain to view the first place the sun touches in the United States. Or, spend the day in the seaside town of Bar Harbor shopping and enjoying the numerous art galleries.


Space is limited!  The workshop is sponsored by the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum, Gallery & School of Art 395 Seabrook Road, Tequesta, FL (561) 748-8737
