Dakotah Prairie Museum in Aberdeen, SD's curator, just got off the phone with me, with an invite to participate in a workshop they sponsor through a really cool place. The Grainery, located in rural Groton, SD.

The invitation extends to 4 artist to put forth a workshop to all of the invited high school artists for, a 2 day event.
What an HONOR!!

At the end of the event is a judged art show with the high school art work... they are given an experience of a "professional" show level event.

The workshops are to hopefully inspire the budding young artists to explore mediums they haven't been exposed to, such as 'glass'.

My workshops are only given an hour long so, I will be more of a lecture seminar experience than a hands on shop...and that was fine...so
next April I am going to Groton!

Since i have never been, this should be something!!
Barring snow of course.
