Lost Pines Art Conference - 2016

Inspiration and Discovery for Experienced and Aspiring Artists


The Lost Pines Art Conference: Art a la Carte, hosted by the Lost Pines Art League (formerly Bastrop Fine Arts Guild), will take-place on Sept. 16th-17th, 2016 in various locations throughout downtown Bastrop. The art conference features more than 30 workshops for both experienced as well as aspiring artists, focused on a variety of artistic techniques and also includes business classes in social media and art photography.


"Creatives seek inspiration," said Patricia Rendulic, executive director for the Lost Pines Art Center. "Inspiration comes from engagement in arts, interacting with artists, and experimenting with other mediums.  Creatives who immerse themselves in learning discover new things about themselves and their art. We have designed this conference to provide that experience."


Conference registration is $75/person and includes: Art Demos, Opening Reception & Night Bronze Pour, Artist Panel Discussion, and Closing Reception & Glass Sculpting Demo. Register online here

FYI, Owner/Editor of 365 Bastrop, Joleen Smith, is presenting at the 2016 Lost Pines Art Conference! Learn creative and strategic ways to create engaging content that stirs people’s emotions in "Social Media for the Small Business & Artist," an interactive, outside-the-box social media class targeted at small business owners and artists. It's not a boring, run-of-the-mill class that teaches you things you already know. You'll learn specific examples of what works, what doesn’t work, and why. It’s not a class about how to run your Facebook page; it’s a class about how to be AWESOME! Excited? Me, too!!!

Or pick Joleen's brain in "Facebook One on One Sessions" (SOLD OUT), where you'll meet with Joleen one-on-one for 1 hour to discuss specific strategies to increase reach and engagement on your Facebook page, including how to create engaging content specific to your particular business.



There are also special "art blast" classes for kids on Saturday from 9am-12pm and 1:30-4:30pm. Students ages 6-12 will have the opportunity to experiment, create, and explore a variety of art materials and techniques while learning about color, print, and design. Each session includes materials and a snack. Morning and afternoon sessions will differ for those wanting to attend both. These classes are $25/child and do not require an additional conference registration fee for the student. Register online here.


Workshop venues are located throughout historic downtown Bastrop, nestled on the banks of the Colorado River in the heart of the Lost Pines region. Downtown Bastrop includes a selection of shops, restaurants, and galleries. Bastrop is a National Trust for Historic Preservation Distinctive Destination with more than 100 restored historic homes in nearby neighborhoods.
