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.
Participants should plan to arrive before 5 p.m. on the afternoon of Sunday, May 11, and depart on the morning of Thursday, May 22, 2014.
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. May 16 is a break day, for participants to decompress, walk on the beach, or explore the area. The second session of classes will meet full days for four days, from May 17 to 20. The banquet and auction are scheduled for May 21.
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.
