MIDWEST ALSO OFFERS A RETREAT OPTION for anyone interested in having a private space to work on artwork of their choice in lieu of taking a class. You plan your own work schedule and join other retreat goers for meals and social times. more

ALL WHO ARE INTERESTED IN THE ARTS are invited to participate in this retreat. Two of the classes, “Spontaneous Mark” and “Collage,” are open to anyone who has an interest in studying those topics. You do NOT have to be a calligrapher to participate in these classes.

You do not need to be a member of Minnesota’s Colleagues of Calligraphy organization to register. The cost of the retreat is the same for members and non-members. Students register for one 4-day class and then stay in the selected class for the entire retreat.

Our theme .....

"It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance, and I know of no substitute for the force and beauty of its process."    Henry James


is to provide artists with an opportunity to learn, practice, focus, share and create in a sustained, uninterrupted, comfortable environment.
