Post Conference Fun!
For all of you staying for post conference workshops we have some exciting events planned! These events will be open to teachers, post conference students and spouses. If you didn't sign up for a post conference workshop when you registered for the conference, but would like to take advantage of these great learning experiences in the state of the art studios at Southwest School of Art, and all of the post conference festivities, you can sign up directly on the post conference workshop page. Select a workshop you would like to attend and then click on the title. That will take you to a Pay Pal button where you can pay.
On MONDAY we will carpool to the beautiful Texas Hill country about thirty minutes from the hotel to the home of Charles and Michelle Belto-Schraub. Charlie will be cooking up some traditional Texas barbeque (and great veggie kabobs as well!). The members of the encaustiCon 2012 steering committee will be on hand with all of the fixin's to make this an evening to remember. This will be a time to relax after your first workshop day, put a piece of hay in your teeth and begin to learn how to talk with a Texas drawl! This will be free to all post conference students and teachers.
On WEDNESDAY we will spend the evening on the River, starting with a scenic river tour where a guide points out the interesting history of San Antonio's earliest beginnings. We will be let off at one of San Antonio's most famous restaurants to dine on some of the best Mexican food around. (Group river boat rates and meal on your own.)
On FRIDAY we will carpool a short distance from the hotel and take the trolley or walk the galleries and studios for the monthly Tobin Hill Art Walk. Those that are able to stay on the week can catch a little of the local color, hob nob with regional artists and drink lots of cheap wine at multiple openings!
The post conference week is shaping up to be as much fun as the conference! Don't miss these events. Join us for learning and laughter at the post conference workshops.
