Gaining art skills through a variety of fun venues
Andrea Koput's class at Earth Goods
We continue exploring great ideas for how to spend indoor time during the winter. One of the very popular things to do is explore one of the new hands-on arts programs that are quickly gaining popularity.
Last year we introduced you to Erica Wick Johnson who had just launched “The Blank Canvas”. Since then, she has opened her own studio in Eagle River at 348 W. Pine. She has hosted paint and sip parties all over the state. Recently Erica has expanded her classroom offerings to include construction and painting of signs. She also offered a wine tasting and wine glass painting class.
There will be several classes offered in February and the schedule will be posted soon. Visit her Facebook page or call Erica at (715) 892-2697.
Andrea Koput also offers these fun painting parties in conjunction with Earth Goods at 211 W. Milwaukee. The public is invited to reserve a spot for a social evening of hands on art experience in fun-filled atmosphere.
Earth Goods also offers various classes in arts and crafts and pottery. To find out what is being currently offered, check out their Facebook page.
Of course, the Campanile Center for the Arts has several classes offered in their arts program and also music lessons in your instrument of choice. Their Facebook page is a great place to keep current on what they are currently offering.
Back in Eagle River at the Warehouse: Four Season Center of the Arts offers a nice variety of classes for all ages. They have “Knitting for All Ages” classes as well as a night for “Couples, Corks and Canvas”. Here is the link for their website. This is a relatively new venture and there are many different venues in the arts. They are located at 107 S. Railroad St.
Why not try your hand at one of these classes? They are fun and you will be surprised at what you can do with a paint brush!
