Calling all artists, writers, and creative spirits

The 2nd Annual School of the Arts at Spring Green features 6 weekends of workshops under 1 roof with renowned UW-Madison Continuing Studies staff

Art doesn’t stop at watercolors and model sketching. It is an expression of what lies within, and flourishes in a place where color, words, and emotions can come together to manifest themselves into timeless pieces of beauty. School of the Arts at Spring Green is such a place. You can choose your workshops from 3 areas: Visual Arts, Writing, and Mind/Body/Spirit.

Creative exploration like this deserves a worthy landing place, and we have found it at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center, built in 1957, in honor of Frank’s mother, a kindergarten teacher.

Each weekend features workshops taught by renowned UW-Madison Continuing Studies instructors. The tough part will be choosing which workshop per weekend you want to attend. But choose you must, as each workshops runs a full weekend (10 hours of instruction total). The community of creativity continues throughout the day with instructor demonstrations, classroom visitations, and camaraderie with other artists.

Spend a beautiful Saturday and Sunday indulging your curiosity and taking a creative leap in a supportive, welcoming environment. We'll provide the morning coffee and tea, as well as boxed lunch and a cold beverage. Come explore the grounds and relish the time and space with a community of like-minded artists.

From Director Lynn Tarnoff

We are proud to present our 2nd annual School of the Arts at Spring Green as we continue to celebrate the School of the Arts at Rhinelander that reached a milestone 50th year last year. School of the Arts founder Robert E. Gard always aspired to launch a school of the arts in Spring Green—to inspire and nourish artists in a community he loved, in a space designed by his friend Frank Lloyd Wright. Finally, his aspiration is a reality. We like to think he’d be pleased.

The workshops presented here are listed by category. To see all workshops for a particular weekend, and to find details and register online, please click on any "Learn more and register" link below.
