SOUTHERN ILLINOIS ART WORKSHOP
1875 HOOKDALE AVENUE, SMITHBORO, IL 62284
The Southern Illinois Art Workshop, Inc. will hold its spring art retreat on May 18-20, 2015 at the DuBois Center Camp (west of Mount Vernon, IL). Three workshop classes will be held:
John Gabb, from Effingham, IL will teach a class in portraiture. Students may work in the medium of their choice. Emphasis will be on providing suggestions and evaluation for the individual student. If you have questions please call John at 217-868-5948. John’s artwork can be viewed at www.johnbordengabb.com.
Terry Waldron of Sparta, Illinois will be mentoring a class for plein air artists. Terry’s work can be viewed at www.terrywaldren.com.
Jamie Willis, from Mattoon, Illinois will be with the Workshop for the first time, teaching a class in the fabric arts and art quilting. She has indicated that although a sewing machine would be extremely useful for her class, it is not absolutely essential. Some of Jamie’s work can be seen at www.thevaultarts.com.
Retreat Special: Come enjoy the collegial atmosphere! Bring your own special art project to work on while enjoying the great people and food at the retreat without participating in any of the instructional workshops. Don’t paint or draw? Writers are also welcome to come as individual students. Although there is no class instruction for writers, Dubois is a great place to concentrate for a few days on that next great piece you’re working on.
The art retreat runs from noon on Monday, May 18, through 4 pm on Wednesday, May 20. The fee of $195.00 covers 7 meals, two nights lodging at the Dubois Center and instruction in the workshop of the student’s choice. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations and fees must be received by US Post Office mail delivery no later than April 3, 2014. We regret that we cannot accept electronic registration or payment at this time.
