The Rangeley Friends of the Arts is sponsoring a Plein Air Oils Workshop Sept. 17-20 with established artist Michael Vermette. The workshop is 2 ½ days of instruction over a four-day period open to adult artists of all ability levels, utilizing sites on The Artists Trail and around the Rangeley area.

The Artists Trail is a joint project of the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust and the Rangeley Friends of the Arts which designates 15 specific 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 also is 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.
