Art at the Edge in Newburgh Indiana


Would you like to see this project taught at your store or art event?  It's a beautiful A4 sized book...it's big.  The class will include everything you need to create the book...it's really a nice project that you will be proud of. 

 
I am planning to teach this book as one of the projects at an upcoming art event I holding in my hometown, Newburgh, Indiana. 

The event is called "Art at the Edge." It's a one day event that includes: 2 classes, lunch, some time to shop and explore the antique stores and trendy boutiques in town, and a little studio tour of where I live and work.  It's going to be a great day, and our event will be during Newburgh's Harvest Festival...there will be a parade and the town will be decked out in fall decorations...and I've already arranged some cooperative discounts with some of the nearby antique stores. 

Art on the Edge will be October 25th 2014, in Newburgh IN.  I'll be announcing more details soon...so check back here.  In the meantime...here's a little glimpse of the venue and some of the shops nearby.

 
This is the room where we'll have "Art at the Edge." This is the second floor event space at The Edgewater Grill (hence the name "Art on the Edge).  It's an amazing venue with views of the Ohio River on three sides.  And there's a veranda that wraps around the entire space...you can take a quick break outside to enjoy the crisp fall air and a close up view of the river.

 
Our downtown is as pretty as a Norman Rockwell painting.   

 
More views of our event space...the space and the waterfront views are inspiring in themselves. 


 
We have some of the best antique shopping in the Midwest.




 
The views are spectacular!






 
And the brick streets of our town are lined with stately 19th century homes...it's really quite beautiful. 


 
So, if you'd like to attend "Art on the Edge" or you'd like to see this book project taught at your  store at your next event,

Leave a comment below...I will be sharing more event details as soon as they are available.  I am really looking forward to "Art on the Edge."  I can't wait to share my quaint little river town with everybody. 
 
Let me know what you think!
 
thank you,
Ken

    1. Hi Cindy, that would be great...we're just a short drive from Chicago. If you're bringing a few friends, there are historic riverfront cottages that are only $150 per night. They have spectacular river views. I hope you can come!
