Homestead Art Programs

Planning for the Art Programs at the homestead is underway. We are planning to have weekend workshops starting in June on a variety of topics and will be taking registration for these by May.

Beginning in June will be one called "Lets' go sketching" led by Marjorie Henn, this will introduce people to some outdoor drawing basics on site. This will run for the month of June with a "drop in " fee for each week.

Other topics we hope to sponsor are: Photography, Painting in Acrylics, Watercolor Painting, Printmaking , Pottery , Birding & Nature appreciation, Felting, Pottery, Introduction to weaving. If you or someone you know are interested in any of these please phone Marjorie Henn, 780-228- 3741 or Lori Dalgleish 780-897-2746.
