The Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance (PRCA) will soon offer monthly art classes. The ART SHARE program covers a variety of art forms, including origami, printmaking, embroidery, salsa dance, calligraphy, knitting, pottery, basket making, weaving, and more. Classes are designed for adult and high-school students.
Eleven practicing artists from the region will present 2–3 hour monthly classes at the PRCA (630 Atlantic Avenue, Morris, MN 56267) or in their own studios. Participants will leave with finished projects and the skills to continue creating and practicing. They also will be invited to display their results at an exhibit organized by PRCA, sharing the joy of art with the community.
The fee for each class will range from $15–$20. Up to two need-based scholarships will be available for each workshop, making it possible for all to participate. Materials will be provided.
The first class, “3-Strand Noodle & Frame Necklace,” will be taught by Laurel Iverson on Thursday, May 22, at 7 p.m. at the PRCA. The cost is $15. Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. For more information, go to prairierenaissance.org.
This activity is supported by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council through a Minnesota State Legislative appropriation.
