It’s almost the time of year for School of the Arts Rhinelander. That’s when the University of Wisconsin Madison Continuing Studies sets up a five-day art school for adults in a Rhinelander middle school.
Director Lynn Tarnoff says she and staff are getting ready to haul at least one van full of supplies from Madison.
“Actually make that two vans. And one of them’s been upgraded to a pick up truck with a car top carrier.”
School of the Arts offerings include writing, painting, quilting and cooking classes…even yoga is on the course menu. Tarnoff says registration is still open, and there’s plenty of variety to choose from.
“School of the Arts offers a smorgasbord. There are some people that come and spend five days just taking one class, it could be an hour and a half long. Others take a five day and sign up for enough classes to keep them busy all day. So our offerings have got something at different price points and different schedules - so you can come for a day, two days or five days.”
This is the 50th year of School of the Arts…and the first year that the program includes weekend-only classes, to accommodate some work schedules.
Tarnoff notes there will be an open house on Monday July 22ndat 6:30 pm. That event will feature a reading by Wisconsin poet laureate Max Garland, and is open to the public. Workshop and other details can be found on the School of the Arts website.
