Eastport Arts Center’s Summer Workshop Series continues from noon to 3 pm, Tuesday, July 23, with Sue Griggs-Bailey’s workshop, Pastels and Underpainting. Participants will learn in a relaxed atmosphere to use underpainting techniques to create a dramatic pastel painting. Attendees may choose to follow along with a demonstration, or may create their own painting from references.

Sue Griggs-Bailey recently became a full-time resident of Eastport after spending 13 summers here.

At a very young age, she spent hours drawing and illustrating her own stories. Beginning in 1972, Sue studied Fine Arts and Illustration at Paier School of Art. She is a member of the Eastport Gallery.

The workshop is intended for ages 12 and up; some drawing experience is preferred. $30 fee includes high quality supplies that participants will get to keep. Space is limited; please preregister with Alison Brennan at (207) 454-8822 or
