About workshops at Still Life Studio

  • Our art classes, painting lessons and workshops are small, typically between 5 and 10 students (with exceptions when space allows). This ensures that you'll receive lots of personal attention and time for questions.
  • Classes are taught by Adria Moynihan Rusk, owner of Still Life Studio, or other local or visiting artists. 
  • Classes generally meet in the unique setting of a working artist's studio located in Portland, Maine. 
  • Unlike with private lessons that are custom tailored to each student, class meeting times and lesson plans are fixed. Great for a group of friends or as a way to meet new like-minded people!
  • Most workshops are suitable for all levels, ages 15 and above, unless stated otherwise. See workshop descriptions for supply lists and more details. Sometimes exceptions can be made for younger students, please contact us to discuss.
  • If a class you are interested in is full, please contact us to be put on a waitlist. You'll be notified if a spot opens up.
