There are a few slots open in Springboard’s virtual legal clinic on Tuesday, May 18 at 5:30 pm. Artists will receive a free 30-minute session with an attorney from Minnesota Lawyers for the Arts (MnLA) to have questions about nonprofits, estate planning, business organization, contracts, copyright and trademark answered. This is for individual artists or small arts organizations.

Although Ted Kooser’s book, The Poetry Home Repair Manual states on the cover that it is “practical advice for beginning poets,” the book has great lessons for poets at any level of experience. In this course, you will work through Kooser’s book chapter-by-chapter, gleaning the valuable lessons he has to impart, and practicing incorporating some of his “practical advice” into our own poems. Each week, there will be a handful of discussion questions drawn from that week’s assigned chapter, then a poem prompt related to that week’s topics. Each participant will come away from the class with a truckload of new ideas, new tools in their poetry toolbox, 10 new poem drafts and the feedback received on them from participants and instructor LouAnn Muhm to guide revision, and a new writing community with whom to share triumphs and struggles.
Looking for a chance to create some art? Teaching Artist and NWMAC Showcase and Training Specialist Trey Everett led a Zoom workshop to inspire and guide you in creating a 12 x 12 canvas with the theme of Black Lives Matter. This canvas will then be included in the Black Lives Matter exhibit at NCTC in Thief River Falls.
When: Saturday, December 12 10:00 to 11:30 am.
Did you miss the Zoom workshop? We’ve got you covered. Trey has recorded a Zoom that you can watch at any time convenient for you. There’s a quick test video first and then the workshop begins.
Don’t consider yourself to be an artist? No problem! This is open for anyone who interested. No experience or skill needed! We can provide you with a canvas, too. You will be responsible for other art supplies used, like paint, pencil, collage, etc.
Artwork for the exhibit will need to be done by January 4 so there’s plenty of time to complete it! Email Trey to request a canvas and to RSVP! We will also be accepting other art and art forms for this exhibit. Reach out to Trey with any questions! email@example.com or 218-280-4917.
