2018 Dillman’s Creative Workshop Schedule


Dillman’s is committed to offering art workshops because we know learning is a life-long process. We recognize that even though we try to keep the instruction, lodging and meal prices competitive, that the price may be beyond the means of some. With that in mind, Dillman’s offers partial scholarships / honorariums to help off-set the cost of the workshop. The scholarships are awarded to students based on financial needs. These scholarships are set up and given to those that would not be able to attend a workshop if they are not given financial support. Proceeds of the art corner gift shop will be awarded as scholarships to the northern Wisconsin art workshops. Scholarships are available and applications are online.
