The Arts Center of St. Peter Announces Summer Workshops
- Blues harmonica, poetry workshops, art adventure week among summer offerings at the Arts Center
SAINT PETER, MINN. – A week-long arts adventure led by St. Peter artist Eva Hendrickson, three poetry workshops with Mankato poet, writer and editor Erin Dorney, and an all-ages blues harmonica workshop with Twin Cities blues musician Joe Filipovich are new among summer classes at the Arts Center of Saint Peter.
- The June 6-10 Art Adventure Week for kids aged 7-12 will include collage, painting, papier-mâché and more, both at the Arts Center and at various downtown locations within walking distance. “Fun and mess making guaranteed,” says Hendrickson, who teaches art at North Intermediate School in St. Peter.
- Filipovitch’s blues harmonica workshop June 11 coincides with St Peter’s Ambassadors’ Blues Fest. Participants will receive a free harmonica courtesy of the Minnesota Blues Society.
- Dorney’s poetry offerings — Visual Poetry and Collage May 12, an Ekphrastic Writing Workshop June 9 and a poetry mentorship beginning August 18 — are designed for beginners and intermediate students aged 16 and up.

The Arts Center’s summer offerings also include clay classes for kids, adults and retirees; a drawing workshop for beginners; a monthly drop-in writers’ critique group led by Arts Center Executive Director Ann Rosenquist Fee (second Sundays, 3-4:30 p.m.); and a free monthly open clay studio led by instructor Caitlin Robb (second Sundays, 3-5 p.m.)
These activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Community Arts Education Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
