ArtOrg has experimented with different ways to hold art classes for kids and adults. One particularly successful series has been the small steamroller printing activity that we take to different art festivals and gatherings. In the first summer of this activity, which we call the “Thousand Print Summer”, we printed for 1180 people at ten different events around the region. One of ArtOrg’s goals when we first started was to build a capability to teach 1000 people per year–so we are please to announce that we have found a sustainable way to achieve that effect!

ArtOrg continues its small steamroller printing activity in a big way for the summer of 2010. The current project is called the “2010 Thousand Print Summer” and we expect to travel to about twenty local and regional art fairs and camps. We are very excited to bring art and printmaking to many people. Please join us at one or more of these locations this summer! Check the schedule on our calendar here, and look for events marked “ArtOrg 1000 PS”.

Join us in a relaxed atmosphere to draw from a model. ArtOrg has maintained this open drawing studio for several years and is proud of offering this opportunity to local artists.
Glassblowing Open Studio
Rick Swearer and Gail Dahlberg
First Saturday of every month: please call to register.
12 noon to 4 pm
Glassblowing Studio at The Anderson Center in Red Wing
Join Rick Swearer and Gail Dahlberg for an afternoon of glassblowing. This open studio is design for beginners to get a feel for glassblowing and current students to have more time in the studio. Register early to avoid disappointment. Thanks to the Anderson Center for this wonderful opportunity.
There are several ways to register for ArtOrg classes:
1) Call 645-2555, if neccessary, leave a message and we will call you back.
2) Email us at the address: info AT artorg . info
3) Mail us at ArtOrg, 314 Division Street S., Northfield, MN 55057.
In general, we hold classes if we have enough registrations to cover the instructor’s fees. This is a real opportunity for small groups of students. Please talk to us about creating your own “perfect” class in your favorite art area–design your own class if you can find as little as five students! Also, printmaking classes can be offered on an ad hoc basis in almost any schedule–call us for more details. Basically, if you want a class and can find a few people interested in taking it–we can put it together for you.
