“A Taste of the Arts”

March 25 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Feel like it’s time to express yourself by doing a little art? But don’t know how or what’s right for you? AmadorArts is providing a way. Don’t miss the opportunity on Saturday, March 25, to take three 90-minute workshops of your choice given by some of our area’s top artists.  This seventh annual “mini arts institute” is open to residents in Amador and Calaveras Counties, or beyond, and specifically targets adults and junior and high school students.  From a menu of 19 classes, attendees may select three courses to “take a taste” of the arts, either for the first time or for further exploration. The cost for three classes, supplies included (exception: the feather classes),  is $40 for adults; $20 for junior and high school students.

Starting January 30th, the website, www.amadorarts.org , will have the entire Registration Form that may be either printed and mailed in or filled in on-line and completed with a credit card payment through PayPal.  Or, a brochure is available that contains the Registration Form that can be mailed in with payment. Pre- Registration is required.

“A Taste of the Arts” begins March 25 at 8:00 am to receive your personal packets. Classes start at 8:30 and end at 2:00 pm at Amador High School in Sutter Creek. Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with a maximum of 15-20 students for most classes.  Therefore it’s important to register early. The Registration Deadline is March 6.  There will be no late registrations or refunds. Regarding lunch: it’ll be from 11:45 to 12:15, followed by a 15-minute “Taste of…” Theatre Arts Performance. Attendees will be able to pre-purchase lunches made by Mother Lode Deli.
