We hope everyone had a great summer! Our fall classes start as early as October 7th. Take a look at our lineup and see what works for you. Sign up for something fun with a friend. Take advantage of fall energy and nurture your creative self!
School Release Days and are up! Minneapolis has off October 14-16th, and St. Paul is off October 15/16th. Sign your kids up for an art day camp!
Teen classes this session include Comics to Animation with Joy Spika on Thursday evenings, starting October 22nd. Corilyn Wagner is also teaching Drawing and Painting on Wednesdays starting November 4th.
Adults have a wide variety of multi-week classes and one/two day workshops to choose from. Monday night Drawing and Painting will be taught by Nell Pierce starting October 12th. Laura Juul is teaching her two week precious metal clay intro workshop starting October 1st, and a one day workshop on fused glass (pretty colors!) on Sunday November 15th. But you should really just go to the class page and check out the selection of classes. We're heavy on storytelling this session, but there's something for everyone - paper and book arts, journals, children's book illustration, zines, comics, visual poetry and more!
As always, scholarships are available that cover 60% of tuition. Just stop in and ask for one, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to send one right over!
Thanks to everyone who helped us make the summer art festival circuit. Fall is its own beast and we need help with all kinds of things! At the moment we could use volunteers for:
- Flier delivery all September to businesses (we have a list of locations we like to visit)
- Teaching assistants for school release days starting mid-Oct. (This one requires an interview if you haven't done it before.)
- Retail inventory Sunday 9/27 from 1-5pm (quick and dirty - Laura and Holly will be so grateful!)
If you're already a volunteer, email Deb at email@example.com and let her know what you'd like to do!
Also! Everyone should join the new Facebook group we created this summer for ArtiCulture volunteers!
The following changes have been made to the fall schedule:
- Creative Self : This 6 week class will now start one week later and run 4/15-5/20.
Volunteers make the world go round, and certainly grassroots organizations like ours! We just updated the volunteer page of our website. At the moment we have a particular need for folks who'd enjoy helping with:
- Flier deliver mid-April
- Summer/fall festivals in May, August, and September.
- Social media and digital communications
Details are on the volunteer page. Check those out and if you're still excited, fill out the volunteer application.
Boom! They're up!
