Last weekend I drove up to Minneapolis for the pleasure of studying with one of my favorite artists, James Edward Scherbarth. I had taken a workshop with Jim last April at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, WI. I really respond to Jim’s style of teaching and got so much out of the first class, that I signed up for another course as soon as I had a chance.
Jim’s studio is located in the Northrup King building – an enormous L-shaped warehouse building in Northeast Minneapolis, that has been taken over by the local artists community. The place is filled with artist’s studios – what a dream to walk through that place!
All six of the students were comfortably placed at tables in Jim’s studio which was lined with all of Jim’s amazing work, currently for sale in his gallery. What an inspiration that was! We had three wonderful days of learning, inspiration, and creativity. Jim taught us some great techniques, and inspired us with thought provoking exercises and lectures on art and creativity.
Thanks Jim! Can’t wait to take another one of your workshops!
