ESSA to host workshops in October, November

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Eureka Springs School of the Arts will kick off its fall session in September, and it will continue into October and November. There will be four workshops offered at that time.

Dan Morris will teach “Into to Drawing” from Oct. 2 to Nov. 6, where students will learn fundamental drawing techniques developed in Europe and America since the Renaissance using traditional materials. These basic drawing skills have broad application in many other fields of visual arts, including painting, sculpture and design. The students will develop the ability to see the way an artist sees.

Bob Patrick will teach “Door Hardware” from Oct. 2-6. This class is for students who have basic blacksmithing skills. The students will be making door hardware such as doorknockers, door handles, simple hinges and other hardware as time and skill permit.

Mary Patrick will teach “Glass Mosaics” from Oct. 2-6, where students will create a transparent glass mosaic to hang in a window. Students will learn glass cutting techniques to design a picture of their choice. Once the glass is set into a frame, it will be grouted, cleaned and ready to hang.

Kip Powers will teach “Introduction to Woodturning” from Oct. 4-6. This class will cover both spindle and face work tuning, with safety in operations being emphasized. Included projects are bud vases, small bowls, candleholders and plates. Proper sanding techniques will be taught, and application of different finishes will be covered.
