“White and Pink” by Mary Ann Heinzen.

CUSHING — Arts in the Barn hosts a watercolor workshop with Mary Ann Heinzen Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 16 through 18, at the Cushing Historical Society, 17 Hathorne Point Road. This class will paint both plein air and in the barn. Working outdoors can be rewarding and challenging, according to Heinzen. A seasoned watercolor instructor, Heinzen will begin each class with a watercolor demonstration. There will be individual feedback and assistance throughout the workshop. This workshop is for artists of all levels and beginners are welcome.

Thursday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to noon: “Morning Light – Plein Air at the Barn,” working outside the barn, attendees will focus on the light, filtered by the surrounding trees.

Friday, Sept. 17, from 2 to 5 p.m.: “Afternoon Light – Open Field and Sky,” participants will meet at 107 Hathorne Point Road at 1:30 p.m. and walk across the street to the field.

Saturday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon: “Bring the Garden Inside – Back to the Barn” for a floral still life demonstration. Artists then have the choice of completing their plein air pieces or working from the floral.

In case of rain, classes will meet at the barn. The fee for the workshop is $150 for all three classes or $60 per class. Outside, artists will need to bring their plein air equipment, such as seating, tables and materials. An informational supply list is available on request. This workshop will abide by Maine CDC COVID guidelines. Attendees must be vaccinated and masks will be used indoors.
