This program is not a "howto" in the sense of tech- nique, but rather a "why to" mak- ing of art, with support for other wise women artists. There is an opportunity for participants to teach or share a skill related to the themes of the initial workshop. This program is designed to res- urrect PURPOSE in art-making for women over 50. Art-making and "telling one's story" is an opportu- nity to fill personal gaps and cre- ate purpose and passion in a wom- an's life. The initial retreat, with Jan Phillips, will offer an oppor- tunity for the women to address any barriers or resentment regard- ing their art-making, followed by a series of studio sessions to con- quer these issues and MAKE ART! This program is meant to encourage women to embrace their creativity, actively produce art in a safe environment, main- tain relationships with other art- ists, and to contribute to their community through their art- work. Visual Arts Minnesota will facilitate this pilot program in hopes that it will continue beyond the initial period. Retreat tuition is $50. Reg- istration is available online. Only 25 spots are available. For more information, go to www. visualartsminnesota.org, or call (320) 257-3108 to register. Visual Arts Minnesota is a nonprofit organization that creates oppor- tunities for artists to exhibit and promote their work; provides resources to visual artists, educa- tors and students; and fosters an appreciation of visual art in every- day life.
