Plein air workshop with Vermette set for August in Rangeley

RANGELEY — The RFA is sponsoring a plein air workshop from Tuesday, Aug. 11, through Friday, Aug. 14, with watercolor artist Michael Vermette.
The workshop is two and a half days of instruction over a four-day period, open to adult artists of all ability levels, using the sites on Rangeley Lakes Region Artists Trail. The Artists Trail is a joint project of the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust and the Rangeley Friends of the Arts that designates 15 scenic sites to introduce the unique and rugged beauty of the Rangeley Lakes Region of the western mountains of Maine to artists of all genres.
The trail is also supported by a grant from the Maine Community Foundation. Waterfalls, scenic vistas of lakes and mountain ranges and wildflower fields, as well as lush northern forests and winding country roads will be the varied subjects available to participants.
