Guests are encouraged to continue after the 1-hour workshop concludes, as well as enjoy all day complimentary admission to the Jefferson Museum of Art & History and The Port Townsend Marine Science Center. $5 for kids, $10 for adults. Pre-registration is required. 20 guests max. Masks will be required.


Maria Coryell-Martin is a Port Townsend-based expeditionary artist. She graduated from Carleton College in 2004 and received a Thomas J. Watson fellowship to explore remote regions through art from 2004-2005. Since then, Coryell-Martin has worked with scientists, local communities, and travelers in Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and the Antarctic Peninsula. In the field, she sketches with ink and watercolor, and collects multimedia recordings to build her palette of place, a record of experience, climate, and color. This work becomes the basis for exhibits of large-scale studio and field paintings, as well as multimedia presentations and hands-on workshops for audiences of all ages to promote observation, scientific inquiry, and environmental awareness.


This program is generously supported by grant funding from the Jefferson County Foundation.
