Find the Artist in You During the Minnesota Beef Expo
Minnesota is filled with culture and diversity. The beef industry is no exception. We have uniquely talented people of all types who are actively involved in our beef community. Michelle Weber is one of these people. I first met her when some of my friends and family signed up for one of her painting classes. I had my doubts, since I am not artistically inclined and have zero patience; however, Michelle was a fantastic teacher and any mistakes you made, she would assist you in correcting them (or making them less noticeable). And when the class is finished, you have a one-of-a-kind, piece of art, made by YOU!
Here are some pictures of our work …
“My friends Rachel and Katie did such a great job. Ours all look so different.”
“It was a family affair with my mom, Lori, and my sister-in-law, Nora.”
The Minnesota Beef Expo and Michelle Weber have teamed up to offer this fun & interactive class called: The Artist in You. Participants will have the opportunity to learn basic painting techniques from rancher, artist and illustrator, Michelle Weber. The class is open to all age groups and skill levels.
The Minnesota Beef Expo is located on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Oct. 20-23. This class will be offered twice during the day of Saturday, October 22, both at 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., and the cost is $20. Registration can be found HERE (http://webercustompainting.com/print_detail.php?itemid=85) and is due by Monday, October 17.
“The event was so successful last year; they have added a second class for this year.”
