Holiday Sale and Open Studios!

Still Life Studio is located inside of a wonderful studio building that is home to many working artists. Every year we have a holiday event where art available for purchase covers every surface and resident artists open their studios to visitors. It's a warm, festive, fun event and a great way to support the local art scene while giving yourself a great boost of creative energy. 

I will be in my studio all day and would love to see you. Please stop by to learn more about lessons, or just to say hi!

Saturday December 12th 10am-6pm. 250 Anderson St. Portland ME. 

New Website, New Business Name, New Blog!

My studio and teaching practice have been evolving over the years, and I decided it was time to give my business its very own name. Painting Lessons with Adria Moynihan Rusk is now Still Life Studio. 

Why the new name? I wanted to create a distinction between my own painting practice and the lessons I teach. This will help to keep both things in separate camps, while still being linked. I want Still Life Studio to continue to be a sanctuary for creative growth where personal attention is essential. A place for both learning and retreat from the daily grind. 

With this change comes a brand new website! I will be updating it frequently and I hope it will become a useful tool for anyone wanting to learn more about what I do. Of course if you have questions that aren't answered here, please contact me
