Summer Art Workshop and Lecture Series

Sierra Nevada College’s Visiting Artist Workshops announces an exciting 2011 summer season! SNC offers a variety of summer workshops by nationally known ceramists, glass artists, painters, sculptors, printmakers, digital artists, musicians, photographers, paper makers, jewelers, and more on the beautiful lake Campus.  Students can take workshops for personal enrichment or college credit. Tuition includes some materials, possible firings, equipment rental, etc., and daily lunches.

Every Tuesday night at 7pm, during the workshops, SNC hosts a "Meet the Artist" lecture in the Prim Library, which will be immediately followed by an informal reception in the Tahoe Gallery. It's free and open to the public.

Lake Tahoe and the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountains truly inspire the artist in all. The workshops teach new techniques and expand knowledge in a variety of mediums. Not to mention, the many activities in the area to enjoy also.

More information regarding class details, housing, tuition, and schedules are available at or by contacting Sheri Leigh O'Connor at 775.881.7588 or
