working skills and give a solid foundation for building your own stringed musical instrument. You will start by designing and building a uniquely American instrument: the Appalachian, or mountain, dulcimer. This beautiful instrument is relatively easy to both build and play. Even those with little or no woodworking background will be able to complete a dulcimer. Students who finish in time may start a travel, or “back pack,” guitar. This popular instrument is light and easier to make than a full-size guitar. Both projects involve shaping, bending and joining wood into delicate yet amazingly strong structures—skills that can be applied to a wide range of other fabrications and sculptures. Please note: Completing a dulcimer and a guitar will likely require shop time outside of class.

In this class, students will learn how to move into what athletes call the zone, or flow state, and engage their whole brain in order to see more fully. Through a series of focus and drawing exercises, students will explore the fundamentals of composition, perspective, line and shading both visually and intuitively. Using charcoal, we’ll explore special relationships and proportion learning to put what you see on the page. This is an ideal class for people who want to improve their skills by learning a new way to see for the purpose of drawing. Appropriate for new and intermediate students.
