Bjِrklunden Offers Watercolor Seminar

From Sept. 23 – 28, Bjِrklunden is offering “Watercolor: A Fresh Start” with Helen Klebesadel.

This watercolor seminar is designed for beginners as well as for those with some experience painting with watercolor but need a refresher. Explore the fall at Bjِrklunden while enjoying this opportunity to learn or re-learn watercolor from an artist passionate about the medium in a supportive and friendly learning environment. Seminar participants will explore basic traditional and experimental approaches to watercolor painting.

Klebesadel was a member of the Lawrence University faculty from 1990 to 2000 teaching studio art and gender studies. She currently serves as director of the University of Wisconsin System Women’s Studies Consortium. Known as an engaging teacher and for her highly detailed narrative watercolor, Klebesadel exhibits her paintings nationally and internationally. She has been invited to teach watercolor and creativity workshops from Texas to Alaska.

Maintaining an art studio in Madison, Klebesadel has served as the only visual artist on the Wisconsin Arts Board since her appointment by Governor Doyle in 2005. For more information about her artwork and exhibition schedule visit

Seminars take place at Bjِrklunden’s lodge, just south of Baileys Harbor. Seminar classes meet weekday mornings and some evenings.
