How many times have you seen the opportunities your kids have that you didn’t as you dropped them off at school or college and thought, “Geez, I wish I could do that!” So do it! The Sharing Arts Network and the Dublin School are SO excited to offer this seven-day artist retreat for everyone 21 years and older! There will be three two hour sessions each day.
You will alternate instruction between Drawing from life, working on wheel thrown pottery for a night time, Japenese Raku firing and dinner party at the end of the week, wooden bowl turning on the lathe, art history lectures, landscape or abstract painting (in oil or watercolor) and an Introduction to digital Photography and Photoshop. Students are primarily responsible for their own food, but there are excellent local shops to choose from. There will be a dinner party at an instructor’s house one night, and a BBQ the night of the Raku firing. In addition, instructors will be available to make reservations and lead dinner and drinks out with the group most nights. Fees include all materials, instruction, instructor led critiques, and the cost of the two dinners. Come make new friends at ART CAMP for Grown Ups!
Discounted rooms and blocks of rooms available at the beautiful, historic Fitzwilliam Inn, a two-minute walk to the artist/instructors home. Instructors can coordinate an Air B-N-B for up to 8 people for less than 200 for the whole six days.
