Nested on the edge of Lake Michigan, Ox-Bow has been a place of retreat for artists for over a hundred years. It is also the birthplace of PBI. Housing is in rustic (and very charming) cabins and bunkhouses. Meals are provided by the Ox-Bow kitchen, and are served family style, with a focus on healthy, delicious, sustainable choices. All food restrictions can be accommodated. Please indicate any food restrictions or allergies on your housing and travel form.
PBI consists of two sessions. During the first four-day session, participants will take two classes – one meeting in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
Daily life at PBI is a pleasant mix of intensive class time, group meals and independent work time in the studio. Guest lecturers, visiting artists and other events are scheduled some evenings during the session for entertainment and enrichment.
