Drawing Mindfully - Virtual Class
This class will teach students of all skill levels to approach their drawing practice mindfully. Highlighting similarities between the practices of mindfulness meditation and observational drawing, Instructor Jaron Childs will work with students to develop a patient, open approach to drawing their subjects. The class will focus on doing away with self-criticism while still maintaining artistic rigor as a way of developing a satisfying, lifelong relationship with drawing.
Instructor: Jaron Childs

Artist Designed Escape Room
With the incredible popularity of escape rooms in recent years, these immersive cooperative puzzle games are a fascinating new form of performance and installation art where the actors are real people dynamically engaging with a pre-designed artistic environment. Participate in this unique escape room experience designed by local multimedia artist, Nate Sheppard.
The Headwaters Photography Club has captured every inch of the Northwoods and more. These artists view the world through their own lens and want to share the images they captured of the Nicolet Campus and Downtown Rhinelander with you. This exhibition is the culminating event in a yearlong partnership with Headwaters. Artwork will be for sale; proceeds benefit the artists and Headwaters Incorporated.

The exhibit culminates in a day-long workshop including a lecture or demonstration and educational critique.

Nicolet Student Show
Nicolet students exhibit their drawings, paintings, ceramics, and photography. The work is the result of a variety of exercises assigned by their instructors. The students are working with foundational principals of art such as composition, contrast, design, color, line, shape, and value. In life drawing classes, students gain a better understanding of anatomy in order to draw and paint portraits and figures.
