Shelby Artists seeks artists to lead new workshop series


Shelby Artists on Main Inc. is looking for any and all artists in the area to apply to instruct one of six workshops during the coming new year.

Three of these workshops with be for adults and the others for children. Shelby Artists on Main Inc. has received a grant for these workshops, and the goal is to get the community involved either by teaching or learning.

The group’s call for help says it wants to broaden the spectrum of style, type and creativity among those who wish to share their love of art and the process in which to make a concept a reality. Shelby Artists on Main wants to gather as many applications as possible for review and keep them on file for future workshop opportunities while spreading the word to attain new applications every other month.

Applications for the first adult workshop are due on or before Jan. 1. The first workshop will be scheduled for a time frame within the month of January, after an application is selected, and until the end of February before the second round of applications are due.

You can apply by contacting Mary Yaeger at maryyaeger48@gmail.com.
