RHINELANDER - Get ready for another great Northwoods tradition this weekend, the 51st annual School of the Arts will begin at 8:30 am tomorrow (July 19th) in the James Williams Middle School in Rhinelander. The event is put on by leaders from UW-Madison and typically attracts more than 150 artists from around the state.

The classes are offered over a five-day period (from July 19th-23rd) are geared for adults 18 and older. Art instructors from around the state (including UW-Madison) will offer classes involving several different forms of art.

"So for 51 years, we have people take a variety of courses in many different art forms," says School of the Arts Director Lynn Tarnoff. "We have over 40 courses in visual arts, culinary arts and nutrition, body (mind and spirit), the writing courses are big, as well as our performing arts."

Those interested in the classes can choose from several different options at varying costs. Event leaders say that a half-day of events typically costs $60 dollars and those interested in 90 minute courses offered each day will pay $150 dollars. If cost is a concern, there are other options offered for others who just want to visit and observe.

"After Monday, we won't be taking anymore registrations. But for Monday night, there's a big open house and the community can come in for free and see what we're doing and thinking about," says Tarnoff. "There's door prizes too and refreshments and entertainment as well."

The open house starts at 6:30 p.m. on Monday and there will also be free individual artist showing at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Anyone, still interested in registering for a class should do so in-person at the middle school. The doors will open at 7 a.m. tomorrow (July 19th).
