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 teacher’s 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 of the workshops you may choose among 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, and a farewell lakeside cookout on Sunday afternoon before it’s time to head home and into autumn.
In 2019, Ted Fines will teach digital landscape photography, Autumn Bildson will teach easy sculpture, Cindy Evans will teach experimental watercolor and Richard Jordan will teach parking lot plein air painting (no tramping through wilderness).
