Important Registration Information
SKB and SAA invite you to join us in the beautiful hill-country of Kerrville, TX. Located just an hour from San Antonio and 27 miles from the art mecca of Fredricksburg, you and your muse will be able to retreat from the world for a few days and recharge your creative batteries with an amazing selection of training classes and programs with our world-class selection of Instructors.
This workshop event is for intermediate to experienced artists rather than beginners.
May 21 – Sunday
Registration/Check-In at Schreiner University Activity Center begins at 2:00 p.m.

Workshop Classes & Programs
Airport transportation from and to San Antonio Airport
will be available for arrival May 21 and departure May 27.
You may sign up for return service May 21 during check-in.
We recommend you rent a car or drive your own if feasible as this will give you maximum schedule flexibility during the workshop. Car pools to plein air sites will quickly form and you may sign up for rides or volunteer to give rides during registration day.
Emailed updates with all needed information including agenda, art supplies, shipping instructions, auction, driving directions and more will be sent to you during the weeks leading up to the workshop.

THIS IS A JURIED WORKSHOP. This workshop training is for intermediate to experienced artists.The reason for jurying is to make sure no one feels left behind and that each artist can take advantage of the quality of instruction provided. SEE INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING BELOW:
EXCUSED FROM THE JURY PROCESS ARE: ARTISTS WHO HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED IN PREVIOUS SKB WORKSHOPS; SAA MEMBERS, ARTISTS WHO BELONG TO A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED ART ASSOCIATION. OUR SIMPLE REGISTRATION FORM WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS.
ALL OTHERS, PROVIDE 3-5 RECENT IMAGES VIA EMAIL TO email@example.com, OR THROUGH YOUR WEBSITE.
It is recommended that you reserve and pay for your workshop space as early as possible. Space is limited.
On-Campus Lodging: Your on-campus housing assignment will be sent to you prior to the beginning of the workshop. You will be given the opportunity to request your roommates. Every effort will be made to accommodate these requests.
Hotels: If you do not wish to stay on campus you may reserve hotel accommodations in the area. This would be your responsibility and due to contractual commitments will not reduce your registration fee. If you decide to stay in a hotel you should take care of this at once since it will be the high-season for tourists and rooms may become scarce and more expensive the longer you wait.
Please let me know if you will NOT need on-campus lodging.
How are you traveling? If coming by air and you need shuttle service send arrival/departure from San Antonio Airport as soon as you have the information.
*Please note: as much as possible your plane needs to arrive May 21 before 3 p.m. to give you time to drive from the airport to Kerrville, register, and settle into your room before the Kick-Off Party at 7 p.m.
AIRPORT PICK UP & RETURN TRANSPORTATION: It takes about an hour to drive from San Antonio Airport to Kerrville. Rental cars are available at the airports. Driving is recommended if possible, however, there will be car pools for getting to plein air locations.
FINALLY, Please spend a bit of time looking at the information we’ve provided you about the Kerrville area, Schreiner University Campus and of course, your instructors.
See you in TEXAS !!
