Four prominent Michigan artists and teachers will lead students in three-day art workshops held simultaneously in beautiful Alcona County in northeast Michigan. This retreat offers not only the teachers’ instruction, but also a chance to make new creative friends among the participants and the opportunity to celebrate the end of summer with a nearby mini-vacation.
The setting is pure Up North: a lakeside lodge with views of the forest, deer and other wildlife wandering by, a quiet and calm atmosphere perfect for creative work.
Each workshop runs for five sessions, two 3-hour sessions on both Friday and Saturday, and a final 4-hour session on Sunday morning. Other events during the weekend include the opening wine, beer and hors d’ oeuvres party on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday night entertainment, and a farewell lakeside cookout on Sunday afternoon before it’s time to head home and into autumn.
