Get Away From It All

Hi Everyone,
 
Here is sign up information for ArtEscape in March.  There are some spaces still available.
 
This is a fabulous get away to do nothing but paint, eat and sleep………if you have time to sleep that is.  J
 
You can’t beat the price for what you get, so check it out.
 
If you would like more information you can contact me, or Tis, or Susan Lehman.  Several of us have attended, many artists have gone every year. 
 
The food and accommodations and surroundings are amazing.
 
If you want to see what it looks like there is a website for the Salvation Army Camp at       http://tsacamparnold.org/
Under rentals is facilities that shows the houses where we sleep.  Under camp map is the layout of the grounds.  We paint and eat in the huge dining facility.  24 hour access to the studio.
 
Think about it.  There are demonstrations each morning by two instructors, then you have the rest of the time to do what they show you or do your own thing.  The ultimate get away for artists.
And the lakes, walking trails, etc. are great.
