Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
Starting tomorrow, I will be at Arrowmont over the weekend for the SNAG Fall Board Meeting. Lucky timing as there is a Master Weekend taking place at the same time. I can't wait!! I will be stuck in board meetings all day every day, but I look forward to meeting everybody who is teaching for lunch and dinner at least! ... Might just have to extend a coffee break or two ...
"Working with master artists is a centuries-old practice that provides advanced students an environment in which to hone skills both technically and conceptually. Master teachers contribute inspiration, insight, guidance and challenge, in addition to instruction. Arrowmont has designed a Master Workshop Weekend session in October of seven classes taught by carefully selected instructors with years of teaching, exhibition, and publication achievements. These classes are open to experienced students only and are for those seeking intense studio time, meaningful discussions, critiques, questions and risk taking. With a focus on developing one's personal voice, the weekend workshop activities include: related readings, some drawing, modeling, discussion and investigation of individual imagery and design elements. The weekend will also feature a moderated panel discussion among the master instructors."
