Painting Workshop added!

by Shannon

I just received notice that I have been awarded a second grant by Region 2 Arts Council to offer “The Beginning Abstract Experience” a second time!

The workshop will be Saturday, March 24th from 10-4 with a lunch break.

Utilizing a number of different techniques and mediums in a no-pressure creative environment, students will be provided an easel, canvas (24×36), palette, paints and brushes for their use and will take home their canvas at the end of the day. This workshop will take place at the Headwaters School of Music and the ARTS. This workshop is registered through and sponsored by Region2 Arts Council. To register, send a check in the amount of $40.00 made payable to the Region 2 Arts Council, at 426 Bemidji Avenue, Bemidji, MN 56601. Call 218-751-5447 / 1-800-275-5447 or email  with any questions.

I will also be offering a Green Man upcycled tin planter workshop through Bemidji Community  Education on April 17, from 6-9 PM.  Just in time for Earth Day! In this workshop we will use drills, rivet tools and recycling to create silly and fun plant pots!  Male, female, robot, you decide! We will design each project individually.  Materials used are gathered from local businesses. Finished projects will include liners.  Safety glasses recommended.  An additional $15.00 materials fee to instructor at class. You can register online for this workshop here: Feel free to email me at with questions. Thanks!
