Llano Creative Getaway Weekend
February 28-March 1, 2020
Llano's Cultural District is a hidden gem in the Hill Country exploding with arts and culture. A new concept, the Llano Creative Getaway Weekend will surely get your creative juices flowing. This 2-day weekend offers 16 different workshops taught by local artists and experts. Wanna know how to stack rocks? Take a hill country geology tour? Or maybe leatherwork, fused glass, collage, gourd painting or wine glass painting whets your appetite? You can even learn how to make a fascinator hat and then put on a high tea party! Llano Fine Art Guild artists will get you painting and drawing in no time, with watercolor, acrylics, oils, and zen art drawing. You choose!
Workshops are selected for completion of a project within the 3 hour period. Note: some workshops require two time slots for project completion. Choose four workshops, one for each time slot (Friday and Saturday, 9-12 AM and 2-5 PM). Workshop registration is on a first-come first-served basis, so sign up early. Registration deadline is January 27, 2020.
