PINE RIVER -- Gerald Korte will do one last watercolor workshop for area artists from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 11, in the Pine River-Backus High School commons area.
Korte, who holds a PhD, said he was retiring a year ago. When approached about doing a workshop this year his comment, after a few moments of thought, was, "OK, one last time. That is such a good group to work with."
Korte's career as an art instructor included working with all ages from preschool and up, ending with 25 years at St. Cloud State University. The information he provides at a workshop offers help to artists of all levels of experience. His critiques are positive and encouraging.
