Here is some information that we received from the Southern Illinois Art Workshop.
Come join us for the fall 2014 arts retreat sponsored by the Southern Illinois Art Workshop on Halloween weekend! Spencer Meagher of Sparta, Illinois ( spencermeagher.com ) will be mentoring all the painting students this time. Spencer will be working in his favorite medium, watercolor, but will welcome and assist students who wish to work in other painting mediums. But if you just want to do your own thing, you’re welcome to come and work on whatever project you want some time to concentrate on, be it drawing, photography, or writing the next Great American Novel.
