9th Annual Art at the Lake September 23 – 25, 2016 at Northern Pines

Red River Watercolor Society is pleased to announce their 9th Annual “Art at the Lake” Workshop September 23 – 25, 2016

“Look around you and Take Inspiration”

In past years we have always had one featured guest teacher for the weekend of art and relaxation at Northern Pines. And this has been wonderful and enriching but more and more people have asked for a weekend where they can pick and choose what they want to do, what they want o paint and how busy they want to be. So 2016 is the year!

There are 5 workshops offered by Anne Kaese and Sandy Miles that are all optional. So if you want to spend the weekend painting, hiking, attending Art Leap or reading a book by the lake, this is the year for you. You can do as much or as little as you like, learn as much of as little as you like and take the time you need to find joy and relaxation in your art.

Anne Kaese teaches watercolor, calligraphy and bookmaking in the 5 state area and at art retreats across the nation. She is a vocal and passionate supporter of the heritage arts. She has won Teacher of the Year multiple times and is known for her self-deprecating humor and laid back teaching style.

Sandy Miles is a charter member of RRWS and a life-long teacher and learner. Many of the RRWS members first learned how to watercolor from Sandy. Her quiet grace and willingness to share her knowledge make her a wonderful mentor and educator. Both Sandy and Anne were honored as Women of the Year for Art and Communications by the YWCA in Fargo.

Our hosts: Northern Pines is a beautiful 90 mile drive from Fargo. Situated on the Fish Hook Lake, it provides a quiet sanctuary of pleasant scenery and sights. The fall colors should be raging, as we head out for 2 nights and 3 days of painting pleasure.

Most meals are provided – Friday night, bring a bag supper to enjoy before our first optional session begins. Hiking, eagle watching, walks, boating, and lovely scenery will be ours to enjoy – when we are not enjoying the vitality and creativity of you and our hosts and teachers.

Accommodation is shared in the newly remodeled lodge building. Bring your own bedding. For those wanting a more quiet sleeping option (rooms at Northern Pines sleep 2 – 6 people and are assigned based on registration acceptance) I would suggest you stay at local hotels or B&B’s and not stay at Northern Pines. You can participate in our workshop and enjoy meals with us but pop back to your hotel room for a sleep.

We need 12 registrations for this workshop to be held. Registrations will be taken on a first paid basis. Preference is given to RRWS members. Registrations from non-RRWS members will be confirmed after July 1st in the order they were received. Refunds will be paid if we do not have sufficient registrations. Registration fees are not refundable unless we can fill your place with someone from the waiting list.

The fee for the weekend includes the following: Shared accommodation in the Lodge (typically 3 – 4 people per room),all meals on Saturday, a Sunday brunch buffet, and NO workshops. On Friday night, bring a bag supper to enjoy before our first workshop session begins. Bring your own bedding and towels or rent bedding from camp for a $5 fee.
