Additional Art Courses for 2018

We are very excited to announce that we will be adding additional art courses to our curriculum,
Throught the remainder of 2018. We’ve carefully chosen not only the mediums and projects, but
selected the finest instructors. We kick off our new series with a Byzantine (metal) jewelry class
led by professional metalsmith, Roger Horner. Roger has taught jewelry making for the past 40 years
and prior to retirement, managed the Jewelry-Metals Program at Pratt Fine Arts Center, Seattle. All
tools and preparation of materials wil be provided by Roger during this course, to guarantee partici-
pants a successful & beautifully completed project. However, you will still acquire the fundamentals
of metal jewelry making through individual instruction and plenty of practice. Fall quarter, we will
begin our Basic Drawing Course and two textile courses. Watch for additional news in August.
