Acadia Workshop Center

Become a better Artist by taking a  workshop!

Acadia Workshop Center is located in Bernard, on Mount Desert Island, Maine, the home of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. 

We are situated on the "Quiet Side" of the island, a few minutes from Southwest Harbor and about 30 minutes from Bar Harbor.

AWC features 4 and 5 day workshops by top instructors in all media - acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolor and more, with quality studio space plus incredible plein air locations. Workshops usually start at 9AM and end at 4PM with an hour break for lunch.

There is plenty for your family or guests to do and there's a free shuttle bus system on the Island (in season).

Please use the menu at the top of the pages for information about lodging, directions, the area and workshops.
