Last year I was looking around at the various workshop opportunities in the southeast and became aware of Cullowhee Mountain Arts. Those of us who live in this part of the country are fortunate to have several well known and respected workshop venues within easy driving distance; Penland School of Crafts, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, John C. Campbell Folk School and Shakerag Folkschool.
All of these schools offers workshops in craft media and at least two offer more traditional art media workshops. Cullowhee Mountain Arts has established itself with a focus on painting, drawing, mixed-media, photography, ceramics, book arts and writing workshops taught by instructors with national and international reputations.
CMA has formed a relationship with Western Carolina University where the actual workshops are held and this summer 21 week long workshops are scheduled. A partial list of instructors includes: Rebecca Crowell, Jane Nodine, Lisa Pressman, Stuart Shils, Alice Austin, and Baron Wormser. Please visit the CMA site to see all the classes and instructors.
The school is founded on the idea of high quality instruction for students of every skill level from beginner to professional with required skill level noted for each workshop along with a detailed description of the class.
In addition to the workshops at Western Carolina University, CMA is also offering several additional study opportunities. The first is Workshop Retreats at Lake Logan in Canton, NC which are scheduled for May and September and the second is Art + Retreat in Santa Fe and Taos NM in April. All of the workshops are located in beautiful surrounding, quality classroom facilities and accommodations.
Please visit the various links to read about these exciting classes. There might be one that that is just right for you.
