Introduction to Cloisonne´ and Enamel Color Layers
I've been teaching at The Arrowmont School of Art and Craft for over 17 years. I actually attended as a student 1988; it was my first experience at a "craft school". I've attended numerous conferences there and it's one of my favorite places in the world. It's just outside the Smokey Mountain National Park, right in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg.It's an aritstic gem hiding right in the middle of the tiny touristy town. The staff here bends over backwards to make your experience incredible and memorable.
It's basically "art camp" for adults! You will have a total immersion experience for the week as you are surrounded by art and art students 24/7. You will walk through the gallery and view either the "instructor exhibit" or whatever the current show is. After dinner there are instructor presentations and sometimes even a demonstration. Students are allowed to work until 1 a.m. so you have plenty of time to learn, play, socialize, and make things. If you've never taken a workshop there it should be on your bucket list. My workshops there fill up pretty quickly so if this interests you give them a call and check on availability. They do have a pretty flexible cancellation policy so don't be afraid if you are on the wait list. Every class I've taught there has at least one person who was on the list.
This workshop is designed for students of all levels. Even Beginners!
There is always a wide range of experience levels in my workshops here, so you can be sure that not only will I be able to meet you at your level of ability, but you will also be exposed to students moving off in different directions. It's more of a challenge for me to teach a workshop like this but much better for you as a student as you will be exposed to so different perspectives and lessons.
