Shakerag Workshops will begin its 13th season this June, with week-long classes in a variety of art media. Held at St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, Shakerag Workshops, an adult arts workshop program, has operated since 2004 with classes during the middle weeks of June. The two sessions of Shakerag Workshops, June 12-18 and June 19-25, attract about 150 participants from all around the United States. Registration is open.
Shakerag Workshops attracts a diverse group of artists who enjoy the gourmet meals and social gatherings surrounding the classes almost as much as they enjoy the workshops themselves. Most classes are open to a wide range of participants, and beginners and professionals take classes together. The inclusive atmosphere of Shakerag is one of the hallmarks of the program, and teachers over the years have commented on the vitality of classes which include students with a variety of experiences.
Workshop participants and the general public are invited to attend artists' talks each evening at 7:15 p.m. in McCrory Hall on the St. Andrew's-Sewanee campus. The Shakerag Lecture Series, with guest speakers, is held on Wednesday evenings in McCrory Hall at 7:30 p.m., followed by a reception in Simmonds Hall honoring the Shakerag faculty.
