Monhegan is a small, rocky island ten miles from the nearest mainland and scarcely a square mile in area. It is accessible only by boat and there are no cars or paved roads on the Island. Since long before the explorer John Smith visited it in 1614, it was known to Native Americans as a prime fishing area, though today its economy is more invested in tourism than it is in lobstering or fishing. The year-round population has seldom exceeded 65 in recent times.For more than 100 years, Monhegan has been a summer haven for artists and other visitors who appreciate its isolation, the beauty of its wilderness areas, its quiet relaxed atmosphere, and its unhurried pace. Monhegan Associates, founded in 1954 by summer resident Ted Edison to preserve and protect the wild lands of the island and its “simple, friendly way of life,” is responsible for the protection of the undeveloped parts of the island outside the village and harbor. About 12 miles of trails, often steep and strenuous, lead through wooded areas and over rocky ledges up to the highest ocean cliffs on the Maine coastline.Residents and visitors alike work to see that the wild-lands will remain wild and that the fragile ecology will not be endangered. Please join us in this endeavor and exercise care, in the Village as on the trails and cliffs, to assure that future generations may find and enjoy the same attractions that are so important to those who appreciate the Island today. Don’t litter anywhere on the Island: “pack it in, pack it out!”
“Your Monhegan Island Workshops are pure magic. The experiences you created, the learnings and freedom you give to “open up and be” changed our lives”. Thank you, forever. Colleen Townsley Brinkmann
“This workshop was fabulous! Having Jacqueline as a teacher was very inspirational. I have been doing oil painting since I was twelve and have a Masters in Art Education. Although I have taken many art classes in college this was very different. She taught me a different way to look at what I was seeing. It is easy to get set in one way of painting and not want to learn a different way. I enjoyed learning the techniques needed to be a successful Plein Air painter. She gave me the confidence needed to continue making art myself and not just for my students. I recommend taking this workshop even if you know how to paint, but want a fresh perspective. It is a challenge to allow yourself to change the way paint, but it is well worth work” .
Thank you Jacqueline for this wonderful experience.
