UWS member, Jana Parkin, will be teaching a workshop at a castle in France in June 2020. Marouatte Castle, in the Dordogne region, sits on 240 acres of woodlands and looks like a fairy tale castle! Artists actually get to stay at a private room in the castle. Each has a private bath as well. We will also take day trips to the surrounding villages, which are amazingly picturesque and begging to be painted. Fairly nearby are the famed Lascaux caves, and Grotte de Villars with Neolithic paintings dating from 19,000 BC.
Visit janaparkin.com to be placed on the email list for more information about the castle workshop. Or reach out to her directly: janaparkinart@gmail.com.

Teaching opportunity at Michaels

michaels_maker nation
Michaels is making art more accessible by partnering with local artists and makers to offer classes as independent contractors in Michaels classrooms. Instructors set the per-student rate for classes, class size, topic, and supplies (which must be available at Michaels).

The program at Michaels is called “Maker Nation,” and is offered in Michaels stores in Park City, Salt Lake City, Riverton, Bountiful, and the greater Salt Lake City area.

If anyone you know might be interested, they can apply online at https://www.michaels.com/makernationteachers.html
