Kids' Art Clubs
Our Kids' Art Clubs continue to be a fun, creative outlet for
area youth. We still have room for a few more kids, so encourage any
children you know to attend. Grades one through three will meet April
14 and 28 and grades four and five will meet April 15 and 29. Please
call the Arts Council office to register - 320-235-8560 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org. If school is cancelled due to weather on Club
day, the Club is also cancelled.
The artists for the chairs have been decided. They
are: Ron Adams, Kristin Allen, Donna Jean Carver, Violet Dauk, Victoria
Holm, Karen Kosmas, Terry Lewison, Tracey Lynn, Lori Martinek, Suzanne
Napgezek, Andre Nelson, Patt Nelson, Sharon Schuetze, Michele Steffen,
Kate Zare, and Pearl Ziegenhagen.
The artists picked up their chairs and are hard at work creating
something wonderful! The chairs will be unveiled May 22.
The current production at the Barn Theatre is "An Evening of
Culture" by Mark Landon. Once again we have a themed, invitational
exhibit running with the production. We have chosen the theme of "The
Classics." Any classic works - a classic movie, book, musical piece,
automobile, person! We received 20 works by 13 artists and are
thrilled with the variety! The exhibit will be up April 1 - 30. The
public is encouraged come view the exhibit and vote for their favorite
piece. The winning artist will receive $100.The Art of Doodle and Design
Think you can't draw? Well, think again. When you learn the art of
doodling you will be able to create beautiful and fun works of art.
Jill Wotzka got started in a class with a certified Zentangle instructor
and has gone on to develop her own techniques. And she's going to
share them with us in a class May 17. We will meet in our classroom
space on the third floor of the Barn Theatre from 9:00 to 1:00. Cost is
$35 for Arts Council members and $40 for non-members (wouldn't this be a
great time to become a member??). To register, call the Arts Council -
235-8560- or email us at email@example.com. Hope to see you on the
