April: A Weekend of Discovery in Spring Green

When warm weather finally fills Dane County with the dazzling sight of pink blossoms and sweet smells of fresh growth, what better place to spend a weekend but in the friendly community of Spring Green, which exudes artistic inspiration in every breeze?

This year, UW-Madison Continuing Studies will offer three classes in the first session of “School of the Arts at Spring Green” on the weekend of April 12-13 at Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center in Spring Green.

Soak in the beauty of this valley while becoming involved in painting projects or wellness practices. Make it a warm weather get-away while enjoying a cozy B & B or local hotel. Sip some wine leisurely or go for a brisk hike in a nearby state park.

You can choose from these classes:

A Painting a Day
The frequent painting of a small still life is a powerful and proven way to quickly improve your painting skills and stretch your creativity.

Body, Mind, and Spirit Practices from Around the World
Explore easy-to-learn body, mind, and spirit practices that promote healing, stress relief, and more.

Composition, the Structure of Watercolor Painting
Warm up exercises will show you how to arrange and adjust shapes to create the backbone of a painting. You paint subjects that interest you, whether it’s still life, landscapes, or abstracts. For beginner and advanced watercolorists.
