Featured Program: Summer Solstice Sunrise Hike & Pastel Drawing

Do you want to celebrate the beginning of summer in a unique and memorable fashion?

Join North Star Adventures LLC and Sweet Maple Corner Arts for a Sunrise Hike on the Summer Solstice. 

Our hiking destination is Bald Rock Mountain located in Lincolnville, ME.  The hike is approximately three miles round-trip. The first mile follows an old carriage road with a gentle incline. The last half mile takes you up the Bald Rock trail. You will be greeted with spectacular views of Penobscot Bay and islands that appear to float on the horizon waiting for the warmth of the sun.

At the summit we will be joined by Artist Rachel Littlefield, from Sweet Maple Corner Arts. She will be guiding us in the use of pastels to create beautiful drawings of the morning sky as the sun makes its first summer appearance.

Rachel is a painter who lives in and gets her inspiration from beautiful Waldo County, Maine. Using the sunrise as her muse and nature’s changing moods as her palette, she creates dynamic artwork using acrylic paint, pastels, and watercolors. She  believes that the first and most crucial step in embracing your inner artist is practicing your ability to see the beauty around us.  Once your eyes are opened, there are opportunities for artistic expression everywhere! 

Departure time is 3:00 AM from the Bald Rock Trailhead on the Youngstown Rd. in Lincolnville, Maine. Sunrise is at 4:52 AM. We will be on the summit creating beautiful drawings for the official Summer Solstice at 6:09 AM!

Cost for event is $95.00 and includes all art supplies, coffee, tea,  yummy baked goods at the summit and instruction.

Welcome the summer sun from an incredible vantage point and create beautiful pastel drawings to celebrate the occasion.
